Speedy Recovery

Daisy Shaker

Speedy Recovery

Hi there :)  A friend of mine finally went in for her long awaited knee surgery, so I had to make a special card for her.  Her favorite color is orange, and fave flowers are gerbera daisies.  I’ve had this stamp set from Inkadinkadoo for a looooong time, and have never used it, so figured it would be perfect for this occasion!  I also thought it would be perfect to make a shaker card with, as I haven’t made one for ages, and it would give her something to play with while she recuperated on her couch, lol.  I used the bigger daisy from the set to stamp a background, and the frame to make the shaker part.  I colored everything in with my Prismacolor pencils, then assembled it, using a computer generated sentiment, some gel pen accents, a piece of turquoise ribbon, and some sequins and pearls for the shaker part.  She loved it, calling it her get well fidget spinner, lol.  I’m happy to say that she is a quick healer, and is moving around already :)

I’d like to enter this in the following challenges:

Hi there :) I made this card completely by using the sketch inspiration from MFT Sketch Challenge and the color and stash inspiration from the Butterfly Challenge. I took a look at this sketch:

MFT Sketch Challenge 322 #mftstamps

…And then saw that the Butterfly Challenge had the theme of G is for Glossy Accents, with the color option of Slate Blue. I stamped the butterflies (Inkadinkadoo) all over the backing paper, then cut the frame from some slate blue card stock with my Cricut. I traced where the frame would sit, then used my Prismacolors to only color the inside part…..Of course using blue shades….Including the slate. I took a strip of ivory edged with some black pinstriping, then a strip of white, which I stamped a LDRS sentiment on.  Finally, I stamped and colored one more butterfly, which I covered with Glossy Accents, and added it as an accent.  The joys of photography (when it’s a bit dark), don’t really show off the colors in a true way, or the shine of the Glossy Accents….unless you really zoom in a lot.   I think this makes a cheerful, yet classy card for a friend!!

I’d also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
