Anyway, here is the card that I made. I would have much preferred to use the pink. However, I do like how this turned out.
I am quite embarrassed to tell you how long this card took to make. (over 2 hrs) However, I did stamp the stripes on the diagonal as well as the pattern on top of the card. This was my first time using the Brushstroke stamp set and it turned out quite nicely using my MISTI. (love that tool)
I am sending this card to a dear cousin who I found out had a stroke recently. A few weeks ago, I went back to Jersey for my aunt's 90th surprise birthday party. I saw many relatives I hadn't seen in ages and was hoping to see her there. This card will let her know that I am thinking of her.
Have a super fun time looking at all the beautiful creations this blog hop. Thanks for taking a peek.
