Stampin' Up! Artistic Etchings gets another workout....

I feel I don't use this stamp set enough, so when I was looking for a stamp set to use today, it was one I decided to use... I made this card for a few challenges, the first being the Clean and Simple blog, which was to use this sketch as inspiration
The Moxie Fab World blog, which was to use this picture as inspiration. I used the wallpaper and colours as inspiration. I would love a room like this one!
And, the other challenge I decided to use was the Just Add Ink, just add blue challenge, which is raising awareness for a very important cause, one that is close to my heart, Beyond Blue, Anxiety and Depression Awareness.
Over a million people in Australia live with depression. Over two million have an anxiety disorder. With the right treatment, most people recover.  
It's easy to help raise awareness. Sometimes the simplest acts have the greatest impact - just talking openly about anxiety and depression helps reduce the stigma.  
beyondblue Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month provides an opportunity for workplaces, community groups and individuals to take part in activities to raise awareness of anxiety and depression, and help reduce the associated stigma.
The other part of this challenge was to send your card to some one to let them know they are on your mind... I'm going to send this one to a bloggy friend who has been feeling blue lately... So, if you think it may be you, keep an eye on your mail box...
