A card for a friend

Today I finished up a card that I started before I found out I had a bulging disc in my back. I went yesterday and had an epidural injection and it seems to have helped. I’m not in much pain now but my hand is still numb. So, I thought I would finish assembling this card.

I have had this digital image for awhile and finally finished up the coloring of her. Isn’t she adorable? The only place I know of to purchase her is over at Funky Kits. I love these images and have several but this is the first one I have completed. The name of her is Faith standing and is a Sugar Nellie image. Here is a close up.

I also used McGill’s Garden rose set to make the rose. I used vellum in place of paper and I really like how it turned out. I also used McGill Pine Punch for the little branches.

I used Spellbinders Standard Circles Large and Spellbinders Standard Circles Small for my sentiment matting. I cut both of these at the same time using Spellbinder’s Grand Calibur.

The sentiment is from JustRite Stamper and the You Inspire Me set. The bow is from the SSD Christmas bow assortment.

I made this into an easel card and added some pearls on the bottom section of the card and added another friend sentiment from my stash.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Stephanie I agree the image is adorable and more so because of how wonderful you colored Faith. The colors you used are beautiful together. And I am so impressed with your flower. I would have never thought to use vellum. And mostly I hope your back feels better soon. Take care. Hugs, Fran
