Encouragement Card

Happy hump day everyone! I don't have a Color Throwdown card since the challenge team is taking a break until the first of January. A friend on Facebook recently asked the paper crafting community to support a family in her church who is going through a difficult time right now. The mother/wife in the family was given two years to live and so any words of encouragement were  asked to be shared.  This sentiment is a "go to" sentiment when I want to send that type of card!  It's by Reverse Confetti from a stamp set called "God is Good".  The florals are also by the same company and the set is "Blooms 'n Buds". 

I water colored the base using Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers distress inks on Ranger water color cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped three times using my MISTI with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  The florals were stamped with inks by Reverse Confetti - Bumblebee Yellow, Piggy Bank, Magenta, Parakeet, Iced Aqua and Aqua.  The Stitched Rectangle STAX die is by My Favorite Things.

I kept two grands (ages two and four) all day and got this card done during their 2 1/2 hour nap!  It's always a welcomed time of peace and quiet - LOL!
