To honor and remember this beautiful person, we will continue the blog and the challenges, as she had wished. Our challenge for the month of June--Hearts and/or Flowers--is dedicated to Eileen, and we truly hope you will join us in this special tribute to her.
As I set about to make my card, I thought about how Eileen would want us to continue to use our creativity to bolster the spirits of someone else who is going through difficulties with their health. In light of that, I was inspired to create a card filled with loving get well wishes.
I had a package of tiny lavender vellum envelope stickers by Sticko (in photo) in my stash. I've had these for a loooooong time, and have been thinking about how I'd like to use them.
I also had a gorgeous lavender paper with pink roses that had come with an issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine. One of the lavender shades in the paper perfectly matched the color of these little envelopes.
With some pink ribbon--again from my stash--and some hearts cut with Darice dies, my card came together. As a finishing touch, I decided to add a few flat-backed gems in shades of pink.
For the inside of my card, I cut a plain lavender mat and used a couple of the die-cut hearts to adorn my sentiment, which was computer-generated.
Please visit Let's Craft and Create to see the outstanding designs from the rest of the Design Team. You will be blown away by what they have created! We would LOVE it if you would join us in this very special challenge and submit your own creation using hearts and/or flowers. You've got until the end of June to submit your card, layout, home décor or other items, and one of you will win this month's special prize (see the challenge blog for details).
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
