Supportive Card

I made this card for a dear friend who is recovering after reconstructive surgery following several battles with breast cancer. I'm think I got the idea on SplitCoast, so if the original idea is yours, please speak up.

Party Hearty, Gals!

This is a continuation of the previous post, except these ten cards are for gals.

Stamps and sets used: Party Hearty, Upsy Daisy, All Holidays, Fresh Fillers, Sprinkles; also "Warm Wishes to You" by Hero Arts

Other stuff: Flower Fusion and Flower Fusion Too (felt flowers), SU! brads, grosgrain ribbon, punches, Stampin' Dimensionals, button brads, Stickles

Card 1: Blue Bayou and Baja Breeze. I learned how NOT to dye a Baja Breeze felt flower to be Blue Bayou in the making of this card. 'Nuff said.

Card 2: Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Sweet Always DSP

Card 3: Rose Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Bali Breeze DSP

Card 4: Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Georgia Peach DSP, checkered mulberry paper, Stickles

Card 5: My Muse temporarily left the building, so I asked an online friend to make up a color combination as my inspiration for a card. She chose pink, purple, and lavendar. While digging through my scraps to pick shades of these colors, I got the idea to use the scraps themselves for a card. Card base is Orchid Opulance, and the scraps... well, I can't say for sure.

Card 6: Rose Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Bali Breeze DSP

Card 7: Regal Rose, Ballet Blue, Bodacious jumbo wheel

Card 8: Tempting Turquoise, Gable Green, Apricot Appeal, Rainbow Sherbet DSP, Stickles (on the hat pom-poms)

Card 9: Baja Breeze, Blue Bayou

Card 10: Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Georgia Peach DSP
