thank you set

I made this simple set of thank you cards for Lee Anne, a fellow PTI Paper Doll friend who recently suffered a great loss.  Sometimes it's hard to know what to say, but a small gesture can let someone know they're in your thoughts and prayers.

I was drawn to the elegance of Beyond Border Basics in bright pastels and vintage cream with colored pearls to add warmth.  The background pattern is Mini Scrapbook Series: Library Ledger stamped in soft stone.
