Thinking of You~

Good Morning blog friends. Happy Monday! I hope you all had a good weekend. My weekend went by way to fast. I found out on Sunday that my aunt was hospitalized in ICU with high blood pressure and a viral pneumonia and I have been worried sick and stressed out because I no longer live close enough to go visit her. She was the inspiration for my card today and I am going to mail this off to her in hopes that it brings a smile to her face and lets her know how much I love her...

My card size is a 6x6. I wanted to go a little bit bigger because of the sketch I used. Here is the sketch created by Dawny P

I used bright pink cardstock by Colorbok for my card base. The patterned papers are from MME's Bella collection. I used a little bit of Bazzill white cardstock for my first mat and used some of the pink cardstock for my other mats. I made the flower using my carnation punch by Ek Success and inserted a brad from American Crafts in the center. My sentiment was stamped on some Bazzill white cardstock using Momento tuxedo black ink. It is from Hero Arts. I also stamped out the little flowers and stems from the same stamp set and colored them with my copics, G21 and YR68. I finished off the card by adding some lace ribbon that I had in my stash to the bottom of the card base and created a cute little bow as well. The center of the bow was done using my YR68 copic marker.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
