My Second Special Card

Good Morning it is a glorious fall day again for us! Yeah!  We have been busy with my kids and their dogs here.  So much fun, alot of cooking! 

Here is the 2nd card I made for my relative whose mother recently passed away.  I showed you the first one on Sunday this past week.

The frame is Quic Kutz Nesting Frame 9 and then I used the Joy die 6002/0147 and inked it in SU Pale Plum to coordinate with the beautiful Sofiero papers from Maja Design.  I made a easel to hold it up next to her mom's photograph from Marianne Design.

I colored the Gardenia in Copics and used the Shabby White Frantage around the edges of the flower.

Here you can see the beautiful roses from WOC with the Memory Box die Elegant Scrollwork.  There is also a Magnolia Doohickey dragon fly on it.

In the upper corner I used La La Lands corner die and made a butterfly out of it. 

On the back of this card I put a glassine bag for 2 tags.  The tags are from Scrap Cake and I put on 2 different poems so she could read them when she would like to. 

I had to make her 2 cards, as a crafter you cannot just have 1 to choose from! lol  I really did not know the style she would like so a variety for her is best for her comfort.

Thank you for stopping by today and I wish a great rest of your week.
