Flowers Make Everything Better!

Hello friends~  Today's card was made for one of the owners where I work.  She will be having surgery and I wanted a card large enough for a lot of people to sign, so this card measures 5"x7".

I made the base of the card using Sue Wilson Australian Collection Background Dies and the flowers are Cheery Lynn, Floral Bouquet.

I cut the flowers out of Elizabeth Craft Soft Finish card stock and colored them using distress inks with blending sponges.  I wish you could see the wonderful texture on these flowers.  They're so pretty in real life. 
I added some tiny butterflies from My Creative Time and Memory Box and the sentiment is from MFT.

I'll be adding this card to the following challenges:
Cheery Lynn ~ Anything Goes
I'm also adding this to Time Out Challenges as the theme is "inspired by words", these words.
"Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine"
Anthony J. D'Angelo

I hope that this card will bring her some sunshine during this time.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

What a wonderful design and love the colorful flowers. We are so blessed that you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. We have a new Challenge going on and we hope you can link with us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God’s Word in Jeremiah 32:17 which says, “‘Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.”

God bless,
