A Card for a friend,,,,,,,,and a stash card

Good morning! this is my second post for the day,,,,,,scroll down for my Party Time Tuesdays DT cards :)

Recently, I had a friend mention that the young teacher of her twins was diagnosed with breast cancer. My heart goes out to her, and so I made a card my friend could give her.

I started with this gorgeous prima Madeline paper,,,,,,,it's just stunningly gorgeous. I created the focal point from labels 18 from which I made a frame,,and Holly motifs. I cut the holly off the die cuts so it wouldn't look christmassy. a bow, a stick pin, a pink breast cancer ribbon, butterfly with my MS butterfly punch and some bling and she's finished. I do hope the teacher likes it. 

Here are the layers:

Next, I need birthday cards for my stash,,,,it's nice to make them individually for people,,,,,,,,but it's also nice to have a stash in case one comes up quickly without much notice!

I used the prima madeline paper again (I love that stuff) with the gorgeous teal and brown color scheme.

I get sick of square cards LOL, so I made this one 4.5x7.5 and will fit in a standard business size envie. The focal point, from the bottom up is labels 18, nellie snellen die Lily  round (largest dies used) and then spellbinders floral doily motifs for the stamp. Stamp is fiskars.  A few gems, a ribbon bow, and some butterflies, again with the MS butterfly punch, and she's finished :)

Here are the details on this one:

I hope you enjoyed,,,,,,,your comments are appreciated! Have a lovely week, and thanks for stopping by!
