A Card of Encouragement For A Dear Friend



Happy Thursday!
I hope you all have had an awesome week so far. 
Today's card was created to send to a friend who needs a little encouragement. 
I love to send cards to brighten the day of those dear to me. 



Today's card was created using the Pretty in Plaits Digital Image from All Dressed Up.
I colored in the Digital Image with Copic Markers.



I used the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog Bingo Board to help inspire my design. 
Patterned Paper, Digi Stamp, Fave Color + A Sentiment



I chose Patterned Papers from the Something Fierce Collection by Close to my Heart. 


There are 6 different double sided patterned papers to choose from. 
I chose the Pink Pin Stripe, with the Star Zip Strip, and the Pinkish Red Watercolor sheet. 




The sentiment "Something Fierce" is a chipboard piece from the Something Fierce Complements Set. 
This set includes both stickers and chipboard pieces. 



For a little extra flare, I added a strip of Lemon Cardstock, yellow is one of my favorite colors. 
Green and Yellow are equally my favorite. 
I included green in the floral set on her hat. 

The complements sheets are huge, 6 x 8 sized.

I chose to distress all of the edges of the card with Pewter Exclusive Ink by Close to my Heart.




The inside of the card is a simple White Daisy Panel layer distressed with Pewter Exclusive Ink. 




I hope you enjoyed my card, please feel free to leave me a comment below!

Pewter Exclusive ink for the distressed edges.




I cut out a few of the leaves and popped them up on 3-D Foam Tape for a little added dimension.




I used a few Silver Glitter Gems to add a little sparkles!

Feeling Blue Thinking of You Card

Happy Sunday!

Today's card was one I created for the Feeling Blue Challenge from Pile It On! 
I chose to use various shades of blue to fit that theme. 
This Challenge is sponsored by All Dressed Up
The card was created using the "Amore" Digital Image.


The digital image was colored with Copic Markers.



All of the layers of cardstock are from Close to my Heart. 
The card base is Peacock cardstock.
The overlay is Carolina cardstock, distressed with Lagoon Exclusive Ink



I cut the overlay from the Cricut Cartridge Edge to Edge.
The Digital Image is layered with two pieces of Glacier cardstock
I just turned one to the lighter shade. 
I distressed several layers of the cardstock with Glacier Exclusive In k from Close to my Heart.
Since the Digital Image had it's own sentiment, I didn't add an additional one, however to highlight it, I added two banner strips behind it. 
The white banner strip is distressed with Glacier Exclusive ink. 


For a little added bling, I added a few Silver Glitter Gems from Close to my Heart.


The inside of the card is a layer of White Daisy cardstock also distressed with Glacier Exclusive Ink. 


I entered my card into the following challenges:
