Thinking of You, Marie

Hello everyone...Today I have a card and a tag to share with you.

For this week's challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More, Team B has added a twist to the Anything Goes challenge, which is to include a Get Well or Thinking of You theme for Marie. 

Marie is well known in the blogging community and was one of the original Design Team members at ATSM. Unfortunately she is going through a rough time right now, so I thought I would create a card for her:




I apologize for the somewhat dark photo...we've had overcast skies for the past few days, so it's been hard to get a bright photo. 

Recently, my Blog Friend Betty and I 'RAK'd' each other with some die cuts, and she sent me this lovely Hero Arts Butterfly. I colored it with Copics in shades of coral, die cut the aperture with a Sizzix oval frame and stamped the sentiment. I added a few pearls to the body of the butterfly and a few sequins...and that was it!

My next project is a tag for the Tag You're It Challenge. I wasn't entirely happy with the first tag I created, so when my new Lawn Fawn stamps and dies arrived, I got busy creating a new tag. Here is the inspiration photo with 2 tags created by Donna Mikasa:


And, here is my tag:


Here it is with my new Goodie Bag die cut from Lawn Fawn:



For this tag, I inked the edges of the tag with Unicorn Pigment ink, stamped and die cut the pumpkins and mini leaves, stamped the sentiment and added a bit of twine. I thought it would be fun to create a Goodie Bag to go along with it, so I stamped some of the smaller images in the set, colored them in, and I was finished.

Thank you so much for stopping by...I hope everyone has a really fun weekend!
Barb

Barb please forgive me for the late comment intact I did comment a while back with my IPad but checking back now I see it didn't appear the nuisance of a machine does this often. Thank you so much for taking the time out to make this card and for your kind words they mean so much to me and have cheered me up no end. Love the butterfly they always give me hope, oh and your tags are just fabulous so so pretty.
