Prayers for Rose
One of the women who owns my local Curves where I workout is in the hospital. So I made this card to bring in for members to sign. I made it a bit bigger than a standard card, about 5x7, so we would have more room to sign.
I used watercolor paper to stamp the flowers from SU Bud Basics. I then used my markers to place some color directly on the paper. I put the turquoise and green on at the same time and then used my aqua painter to blend the ink directly on the paper. After drying, I cut them out and curved the petals over a pen. Watercolor paper is much easier to cut and shape, I'm thinking because it's a bit thicker than regular cardstock.
I ran a piece of Green Galore through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. The tag is a Cuttlebug slider, stamped with SU So Many Sayings.
To add some bling, I used SU rhinestone brads and some Star Dust Stickles. You can see the bling a bit better in the close up.
Inside the card I stamped a sentiment from SU God's Blessings:
A friend is someone who
blesses you with love,
and encourages you
Then I signed it , From all your friends at Curves.
I thought that was a perfect sentiment on a card that a lot of people were going to sign.
Today is a beautifully sunny day in Northern Illinois, and I hope this card will bring some sunshine to Rose. Enjoy your day and thanks for visiting!
