For a Special Friend!

One of my very dear friends has been going thru quite a struggle for the last few weeks and I wanted to let her know that she is in my prayers so I created this little card that I hope will put a smile on her face and a little joy in her heart!
I really enjoyed making the flowers on this card....sooo much fun! I found the tutorial on StampArtic under Marianne's flowers. This is a wonderful site for all card makers. The flowers are made using the retro flower punches by paper shapers, the butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.

I colored this darling little Tilda with distress inks and Twinkling H20's which I learned
from Kathy over at Distressed Stamper
She does the most awesome job coloring with these sparkling paints and her cards are gorgeous!
Thanks so much for visiting and have a Blessed week!
