Hi There Bloggy Friends! How is your week going? GREAT I hope! I have been TRYING to get some creative time in! I have a few challenges to get done and ISSUE!!
For this card I was able to use THREE challenges! :)
Dawns Color Challenge, Wild Wednesday @ ScrappinMojo and Pile It On # 30
This card is a card I NEVER EVER want to make again... it is for Amanda's former 1st grade teacher... her baby boy was due in about 2.5 weeks.. but NYE he was stillborn.. my heart breaks for their sweet family (for any family that has to live through this.)
I had the VISION for what I wanted the card to look like.. but was unsure of the colors.. well enter Dawns Color Challenge.. it worked out perfect! For Wild Wed. the challenge was to make an embellie with LAYERS! (I have another couple to share.. in a couple days!), Pile it on was something clear!
The butterfly is made with glimmer mist paper I made.. spraying, Blue, Yellow and Brown.. with pearl over the top.. so pretty IRL.. hard to photograph!
Thank you for stopping by.. and if your the praying type could you keep the Hill family in your prayers.. Thank You!
Have a GREAT day!
This is so pretty and soft--perfect given the ocassion. I can't imagine the heartbreak; I'll definitely keep the family in my prayers.ReplyDelete
