A Card for a Friend

A good friend of mine is going through a very rough, what better way to show her that I care? A card may seem like such a small thing, but it's tangible proof that someone cares. Never underestimate the power of something as simple as a card.....especially a hand-made card!
Although this is the card I made and sent to her, it is very much inspired by something I saw online, but unfortunately I don't know the source.
Check out that big white flower focal's a plain white silk flower from the Pretties Kit that was rolled....yes, rolled!.....with the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel in Rich Razzelberry. If you've been to any of the craft stores, you may have seen the pretty printed you can make your own! Actually, this idea has been around for some time, but I totally forgot about it until I attended a stamping event sponsored by my upline last month. So simple.....just lay the flower down on a piece of paper (our Grid Paper is perfect for's just the best for so many things!) and roll away. Stunning and simple!
As you can see the "F" for friends was stamped and cut out and mounted over "forever" from Fundamental Phrases, a staple word set that is a must have! That cute little flower, from Vintage Vogue, was stamped in Pale Plum and the edges rolled into Rich Razzleberry. Then the simple little tag finishes it all off.
Hope she liked the card....but more importantly, I hope it showed that I care! (It's also another sample for her to have for her shows and classes.) Have YOU sent a card to someone special lately?
