Tilda card for a 'Sister'

Hello, and thanks for stopping in!  Grab some iced tea and take a look around my blog!  Today's post is a Thinking of you card I just finished for a friend.   She is fighting breast cancer and this card is going to be from my 2 sisters, our sister-in-law, and of course myself.  Front says THINKING OF YOU and the inside says BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT 'SISTERS' DO.  Each of the Tilda's on the front would represent one of us, in no particular order.  I used my copics to color them on Xpress-it cardstock.  I colored the background using Distress ink pads (Vintage photo, Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint) and my handy Tim Holtz tool with the foam pads.  I used a couple of small scalloped circles taped together to make stencils for the clouds.  This was my first attempt at a background this way and am pleased with how it turned out!  The fence is cut from white cardstock using my Cheery Lynn Designs 'Victorian Picket Fence' die and my Vagabond machine. 
Let me know what you think of my card and take your time looking around before you leave!  Don't forget to feed the fish for me, and stop back soon!
Happy Craftin!
