Corrosive Challenge # 149

The new challenge at The Corrosive Challenge is Flowers and Bling and Doilies - Oh My!  Use at least two of these elements on your project.  Since most of us use these often, I expect to see lots of amazing entries for this one!  I chose an image I have had for awhile now, she was a generous freebie offered by Krista Smith from Saturated Canary.  For some reason, I have been afraid of coloring these, they seem so delicate and intricate, but I finally took the plunge!  She's colored with Copics, and the layout was cased from Googling other people's creations using this image.  The floral paper was from stash, and I used an embossing folder on some pink cardstock.  Sentiment is computer generated.  The Bling was a recollections swirl, and 3 Martha Stewart Opal Birthstone gem stickers.  I wanted to put a big cluster of flowers, they are a mix of BBP Twisted Flowers, Recollections Roses, and Wild Orchid roses.

This card was for the daughter of a friend from college.  She is around the same age as my son (4), and was in the hospital, facing a rather long recovery from an illness that was difficult to diagnose.  It was heartbreaking, but my friend is a very strong woman, and they had a lot of support, love and prayers surrounding them.  I hope she will be fully recovered as quickly as possible, and that this card at least brought a little smile to their faces.  She was finally able to go home after several weeks in the hospital, thank goodness.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend, and am really looking forward to seeing your creations over at The Corrosive Challenge Blog!  Thanks so much for taking a peek.  Happy Mother's Day to all you crafty moms out there!
