I made this card for my fathers wife, Maria. She is having surgery on her back on today. I know that she is very nervous about the procedure. ...she always loves the cards that i make and has saved all the cards i have ever sent her...even the very early ones...ugghhh...can you imagine? I'm shuddering! LOL! They live on the beach in Southern Florida and her living room is soft purple and sage green ...it's so beautiful...so i wanted to make something special for her using her colors. This is a little out of my comfort zone!
I searched through my DP and found this paper. It's from SU and I cannot remember the name of it, but it kinda came out with the carte postal stamp set and coordinated with that set. I bought it all, stamp set, wheel, and DP and never used any of it! I embellished the card with....but what else?... May Arts Ribbon and some lovely Prima Flowers. In the picture the sagie colored prima photographed almost blue. it's much softer and matches the sage shadow card stock irl.
I ended up liking the color combo so I also made a birthday card for my sister, Marlene. But I can't post it yet...she's always checking in on my blog when she is at work...she's so proud of me...lol...so i'll post it on Friday...in the late afternoon...after she's left work! She's such a snoop! Marlene, if you are reading this...gotcha! love you baby girl!
Thanks for looking! And don't forget to comment on the Blog Candy in the post below. Random draw on Friday!
