I'm posting this card before my back surgery at the beginning of March because right now when you receive this, I should still be recovering. I created this card awhile ago- at least nine months or better. I think it's ironic that it's the same colors as the little girl in the bedroom which I made several months later. They just happened to finally get posted around the same time. Apparently, I like these soft coral colors together!
Even though I made it a long time ago, I want all of you who read my blog, have said prayers for me, and/or have sent me messages to know how much I appreciate them. The world truly is a better place because of beautiful people like you. Please keep those prayers coming and hopefully I'll be back to posting new cards soon.
I made this card by stamping the flowers on white card stock and then coloring them with Copic markers. My shading wasn't fabulous back then, but it was getting better! The sentiment is part of the flower stamp. After stamping the whole stamp on the white card stock, I stamped it again on the lighter coral card stock and cut it out. I outlined it in the same color as the darker coral and put it over the flowers. The great thing about the sentiment is that you could just use it by stamping and cutting it out any time you wanted. It's such a nice little saying and applies to so many different people, so it's very handy that it can be used separately. I put the card stock on a very thin layer of light card stock, on patterned paper, and then on the same light card stock again. I colored my pearls with Copic markers so they matched the rest of the card and it was complete.
Thank you, again, for all of your prayers and support. I hope to talk to you soon!
