I Think You Are Blooming Marvellous

Hello once again. I have a couple of cards to share, made for a couple of friends who are blooming marvellous and achieved great things – even at this difficult time:

They have both been working full time and more, on the front-line, and have just both completed their Masters level to become Advance Nurse Practitioners – Whoop Whoop! They joined my team a couple of years ago, and to say they are an absolute breath of fresh air would be an understatement. Fabulous girls, both with such a positive attitude, they are a ray of light and it’s always a pleasure when I manage to see them.

I started with the grey card, and stamped the Pinkfresh Studio ‘Curvy Floral Vine‘ four times – I wasn’t sure how many of them I would need – and arranged three of them in a wreath. The vines themselves are stamped using Concord & 9th ink cubes – a grey for the vines – double stamping the centre of the vine to get a slightly darker grey, and the flowers were stamped with a light pink – double stamped for the flowers, then triple stamped the same colour to get the second layer of the flowers for some dimension.

The sentiment is from Heffy Doodle – big and bold – just so they get the message!

This was the card I was going to enter into the Color Throwdown challenge but I tried the light blue against the grey background with the vine – and it just didn’t seem to work – hence on to the white card base…….

The card with the white card base is using one of the floral vines, and I also added some light blue and light grey foliage from the same Heffy Doodle set which had the sentiment – again I went big and bold with it for dramatic effect.

I love when I have a good and positive reason to make cards for specific people – both the cards came together quite easily – maybe to mojo needs a reason to become active.
