Barnboard Hello

I make cards for a group at my church that send cards out to those who are unable to come to church. 
They want cards that just say 'hello' or 'thinking of you' and add a little note to the person.  
Here are some I just made this weekend -  all basically the same - I just used slightly different colors of barnwood patterened paper on each one.
I die cut the hello out of gold paper.
I die cut the foliage piece out of felt.
I added 3 Prima flowers to each card over the foliage piece.
Inside I simply stamped 'thinking of you'.
My card design was inspired by:
Paper:  Vintage Cream - PTI, Darkest barnboard on first card from Paper Stash Tidings and Kraft Stock Metallic Gold - Tim Holtz/Idea-ology,  barnboard paper with wider boards - Paper Pad Joann.
Accessories: hello die - Waltzingmouse, foliage die - Nestabilities, Prima Flowers, Tombow Glue, felt.

These are lovely, Julia!
All the different barn boards look great and the wee spray of flowers is perfect with that fab Hello die.
