For Sharon

Good morning, Friends! Are you having a great week so far? We are half way through it! The weeks seem to be flying by! So why can't I seem to get anything done? My sister contacted me yesterday to tell me her mother-in-law had passed away. I had the honor of knowing her and what a wonderful lady she was!! She will be dearly missed especially by her family but also by the community. She did so much for the mentally handicapped in her community! She definitely was an amazing woman! But cancer is such an awful disease! I sure do hope we find a cure for it! Anyway, I wanted to make a card to send to my sister and her family. I know my nieces and nephew are missing her terribly, too. As is my brother-in-law. Love you all!!

So today's card is for my sister and her family. I had found a card that I had saved quite a while ago (like more than a year) because I liked the layout. I got my color combination from the Color Coach. I flagged the end of a strip of First Edition designer paper to a card base of Rose Red. Then I stamped the sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers onto a piece of Naturals Ivory. At the bottom of this panel I added a strip of Rose Red that had been punched with the dotted ribbon scallop punch. This is adhered to a piece of Wild Wasabi and then the panel is popped up onto the card. Then I took some So Saffron to the Big Shot and ran it through using the Beautiful Wings embosslit. I used three butterflies and adhered them to the card. To the largest one I added a strip of pearls. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Thoughts & Prayers; Paper- Rose Red, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Naturals Ivory, First Edition designer paper; Ink- Rose Red; Accessories- dotted ribbon scallop punch, Beautiful Wings embosslit, pearls, dimensionals
