Think pink

In the process of making a card for my niece who is fighting ACC, a type of rare cancer, I realized my older sister could also use a pick-me-up.  I know it's not been easy for either of them.  I wanted a card that would be soothing to look at as well as remind her it's okay not to be superwoman 24-7.  So a little pinky melon and other calming garden colors with natural fibers and there you have it.  Take good care, sis.

To give me a little card-crafting mojo, I took a tour of blogland and ran across a couple of challenges, the Simon Says Sketch Saturday Challenge #276 from last week (I'm going to enter this is the Simon Wednesday Challenge instead) and still current Muse Challenge #35.  I riffed on the SSS sketch and was inspired by the colors and the nature of the encouraging sentiment on the Muse inspiration card. 

The Details:   Spellbinders oval die, PTI sentiment, 7 Gypsies stamps ("you"), hemp, My Moments paper flower, Colorbok epoxy butterfly, Recollections brads, unknown papers (6x6 sheets gifted from my kid sis), foam dots, Scor-tape, Fiskars corner rounder
