Happy Thursday, my crafty friends! I hope you're having a marvelous week! :o)
After a couple of Copic projects, I switched gears to make a card for a sweet 2-year-old named Ashley. As you know, I have already posted two cards this month for Madison's inspirational I Feel the Love Project... one for the severely injured Brandon (found HERE) and one for his mother (found HERE). After reading about their life-changing tragic car accident, I committed myself to a card for each of the immediate family members. That includes Brandon's precious little sister, who I am told misses him dearly. Let us continue to pray for this entire family who is enduring so much heart-wrenching struggle, both emotionally and physically.
I wanted to send little Ashley a splash of love:
The interior, consisting of a Spellbinders Picot Edge Circle. (The card is actually level, but the backdrop curve was messing with me as I rushed around. Hehe.)My Craft Spot. To appear as a set, I used the same blue polka dot background that I used for Brandon's train card. The sparkly Core Couture water is embossed for some wave-like texture.
The sentiment is a combination of Classic Font (a and of) and Create a Critter. I used the blue and pink dot papers to coordinate with the card design. The blue did not stand out well enough, so I inked over it with Tim Holtz Faded Jeans. The card base and sparkly frame are from Elegant Edges, which I chose since it reminds me a bit of bubbles. I hope she likes her wiggly whale card. :o)
Seeing as Ashley is merely two, this card is very much for their mother. A mother who will be so appreciative of the box of blessings she will soon receive from Madison. The waves are topped with sparkling hearts because with each storm that churns in our lives, God's love triumphs. The hearts are not embossed to symbolize peace.. stormy swirls will not unsettle us when we place our trust in God's hands. Not always easy, but always essential. :o)
Thank you for visiting me today, my friends! I wish you a beautiful day of love and blessings. :o)
