If Wishes Could Make You Feel Better

Hello my friends. Thank you for all you lovely comments xoxoxo. Today i have a rather simple card to show. Some of you might have heard about some  news that have happened on the Magnolia Design Team and although it has not affected me directly it made me sad and it does sometimes not help me be creative on my desk.

My card was made with my dear
friend Jacque’s mom in mind. She had surgery just last week, she is home now but now she has gotten a infection. Iam so sorry for my friend. How much she has to deal with???! I wonder how she all does it. Choosing a stamp was a bit tricky i know Jacque loves Magnolia’s but for her mom i wanted to make it more neutral and I think the style and sweetness of Whiff Of Joy’s are just perfect. I combined this little girl with some older Stampin up Design Paper. I think it all kind of works. The swirls in her pants, to the soft swirls on the paper and the ribbon threaded this way. (As you can tell.. even a simple layer card, i probably think about way to much )


This card was made to submit for this weeks challenge on Cute Card Thursday which is make a embellishment yourself. I was not so sure how creative my ribbon threaded frame (Nestabilitie) was, so i made some flowers using tissue paper and added those into the corners. I used the flowers from my Nestie Blossom set. The petals were assembled using some of Whiff Of Joys wonderful vintage bead caps and a peal brad. Than i airbrushed them with my Copics (E50 and R81) and on top of that i used some Tattered Angles (Pearl) mist.

  Stamps: new Whiff Of Joy “Chicken Soup
