Felt great to play this morning, and I'm so happy to be making a card for a fellow artist. Janet Little has been diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. Though not the worst kind (Cancer is the worst in any form IMO), Janet has a positive attitude. She says "it's not up to the doctors but up to God as to when she leaves this earth." You can read a bit about Janet HERE
Because she loves flowers and bright colors, I knew I wanted to use SU Garden Collage (Retired) The bright pop of color is SU Melon Mambo. Although Janet works mostly with oils, I didn't think she'd mind a little water coloring so I used SU Watercolor Crayons in Razzleberry, Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight and Garden Green to wash in the flower and butterfly.
To accent I used what has become my go-to punch, the MS Lace Border. I inked the edge of the button then added a bit of bright pink paper twist as the 'thread'.
When I first pulled this set out, I started working with Marina Mist. By the time I finished I realized I had a Sympathy card. As I was cutting for two cards, I now have a couple of those in my stash.
