Simple Treasures & JAI 39

Earlier this week I noticed that Simple Treasures blog is turning 2 and to celebrate Debbie is giving away a missive pile of blog candy worth $200! She has used a beautiful inspiration picture from Martha Stewart for her challenge (see below)

Then this morning while blog surfing I saw that JAI's challenge was just add blue for Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month and it also happens to be Mental Health week this week.

I've previously mention on my blog that I suffer from depression so when I saw that JAI was holding this challenge I just had to create something!

I've used:
- Whisper White and Marina Mist

Marina Mist
Stamp Set - Birthday Sentiments by Amy R Stamps and En Francais
Other: Nestablilites, Paper doily, Pins and Ribbon (I didn't have any Marina Mist ribbon so I just used white ribbon and coloured it with my Marina Mist ink pad)

Inspiration picture from Simple Treasures
