This...

is a card that I made for a friend of mine who has recently been diagnosed with cancer.  Fortunately she has caught it extremely early and so her prognosis is excellent.  Still, it is scary.  I have know this woman for many years and feel that she is truly one of the nicest and kindest people I have ever met.  And classy.  She is soooo stylish and fashionable!  I really wanted to make her a card that reflected her personal classy self and this is what I came up with.  I will be entering this into the CR84FN42 Color Challenge....which I think is a pretty stylin' and classy trio of colors.


I will also put this in the Hero Arts November challenge.  The main stamp is HA Large Flower and the leaves are HA Blossums.  The paper is Basic Grey Little Black Dress...absolutely gorgeous patterns.  I hope she likes it!  

                                                                       
Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a great night!

Be well,
Sheila
