a card for Ryan

Hey! So I decided to make a really simple, one layered card for Ryan and his family.. If you don't know the story, I strongly urge you to go to this website and read it. Also send a card..:)
I have to tell you I had a blast making this card.. I used stampin up inks, and applied them with a sponge on the card.. well that was after I heat embossed with white embossing powder the image from unity.. :) The thing I found hardest was making the dark colors really blend together, and not just stand out where you lay down your ink.. I like how it turned out! Simple yet interesting is what I was going for.. I hope you all are having a wonderful week :) HUGS
