You are in my thoughts and prayers.....

Someone I know lost their son to liver disease. How sad for her and her family. I wanted to let her know how much I am thinking about her and her family so I made this card for her.

My camera does not show these colors very well. The designer papers are from Stampin Up and they are much prettier than my photo shows. The background paper is a dark chocolate brown with words going thru it. It looks green in this photo! And I have it adhered to a soft pink paper. Can you tell?

First, I dry embossed the panel with a Cuttlebug folder. I hand stitched the pink scallop to that panel
( because I had a fight with my sewing machine and the machine won!) I stamped the Verve tag and then cut it it out with the matching Sweet Scallop Tag die! I just love Verve stuff! I tied a bow around this. I pulled bakers twine thru the tag and then thru the pink button and tied it to the bow.
I distressed the edges of the chocolate paper before I adhered it to the pink card stock.
Hope you like it.
