In My Thoughts - Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Blog Challenge - Anything Goes with Optional Twist - Lots of Layers!!!

This week at Suzy Bee's Blooming Challenge Blog our wonderful sponsor is Dazzling Arts Designs!!!! Of course it's Anything Goes but this week with an optional twist - Lots of Layers!!  Easy Peasy - right??? 

A dear friend of mine is going through a very rough time as her 36 year old son is dying of cancer. When I saw this image, I just knew it was the perfect image to use to make a card for her.

  • black Recollection cardstock size A2 card with Black/White Recollection Collection
  • image was chalked around the edges
  • 2 layers of of scrap paper were cut using Martha Stewart Eyelet Border Punch
  • eyelet ribbon was added and then additionally tied into a bow
  • Miriam's Crafting Supplies Bronze Heart Flourish Charm was added
  • to add a personal note on the inside, I used the same background paper that I had used on the front of the card with black Recollection cardstock with faux stitching using white gel pen
