Monochromatic Thinking of You

I just found out last night that my best friend has received a lot of bad news in the past few days. I wanted to drop a note in the mail to let her know that I'm thinking of her and that I'm here for her in any way that she needs me. But I'm running low on "thinking of you" cards in my stash, so I made this card in her favorite color this morning.
Challenges:

It's sunny but cold here today and there were a few snow flakes falling this morning. It was the perfect time to light my balsam and cedar candle and crank some Christmas jazz music while I worked. My heart is happy!

Thanks for stopping by!

I know what you mean about lighting a Christmas scented candle and cranking up the Xmas music. Really helps put me in the mood!
