Thinking of you

Just popping in to share with you a card I made for a very special friend who is having a hard time at the moment. She is in a situation where I can't do anything to help but be here her when she needs me to listen to her or just to share a cuppa in silence. I am just going to pop this card in her letterbox to let her know that she is in my thoughts.


I have used some white core card as the base and embossed it to give this background flower design. Then used some fancy 'stampin' up' paper for the flowers and banners. This is the first time I have used the die cut flowers as I found then quite a fiddle but today I was patient and managed it! The little fabric flower I won in a blog candy giveaway by Sheryl-thank you Sheryl! A few pearls added for accent.

The layout was taken from the challenge at Try stampin on Tuesday and the colour palette form the challenge at Card and things.
I will also enter it into the 'thinking of you' challenge at celebrate the occasion
