 I wanted to send a card to my sister in law that just went through another procedure on her heart, she was very nervous about it and now she is thankfully on her road to recovery.

I went with the  Beautiful Blossom Challenge and their pretty inspiration board for my card.

I am getting close to having this paper pack all used up so I have a lot of scraps left but the colors were just perfect for this.  I used a ribbon die to cut pieces to go between the papers and then found some pink and yellow to make my flower.

  • Gemini - Cosmos layering flower die
  • BasicGrey - Porcelain papers
  • Cherry Lynn Designs - Alison's Ribbons die
  • Impression Obsession - Classic Corners die
  • Gemini - Opulent swirls die (hello)

Here is the beautiful inspiration board they gave us to work with.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Wonderful card, joyful and happy. I have some of this paper with the bird cages on it. Good Lord I should us it and create a few cards. It has been awhile.

Hugs and blessings

This is such a cheerful card Connie. I'm sure it will brighten your s-i-l's day. What a great victory to completely use up a paper pack. I hope you celebrate by buying a new one. ;0)

Wow, Connie! I love how you have used the strips of pattern papers, and the die cuts atop the scenes! Beautifully done. Loving your take on our challenge as well. It's always fun seeing how crafters are inspired by the Mood Board at our challenge. Thank you for sharing your love of all things flowers at the Beautiful Blossoms Challenge.

Gosh, the papers sure are perfect and hooray for actually coming to the end of a pad! That doesn't happen often. Love all the dies you used. Everything coordinates so perfectly. It's a beautiful card to send to your sister-in-law. May she continue to a full recovery and be better than ever!
