Thinking of you...and Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge

Hi all!

How's the week treating you?? Good, I hope. Well - YIPEEEE it's FRIDAY! I'm glad for the weekend to be here, that's for SURE, though the week did kind of zip by.

I needed to make a card for my friend's sister who's having surgery today. She's having part of her nose reconstructed following removal of cancerous tissue. She's nervous about what it will look like, etc...but she's got a REALLY good doc on the case, so I know she's in good hands, and all will be great.

Figured I'd send a little smile her way, to let her know I'm thinking of her.

I decided to play with Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge for this week, and I think these colors worked out quite well, if I do say so myself.

I broke out my nesting flower shapabilities dies from Spellbinders, and some SU! rub-ons that a friend sent me...and off I went.
The base was TOO plain, so I added the pattern with my retro background set, and to bring in a little more white, I randomly colored in some of the centers with my white gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by today - hope you have a great weekend!!!

Stamps: Retro Backgrounds (PTI)
Ink: Close to Cocoa
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: SU! Rub-ons, white gel pen, darch chocolate twill (PTI), pretty in pink grosgrain (SU!)

So cute!!! I haven't broke down and bought the flower nesties yet, but this is helping to push me over the edge with them!!!

Love how you used the gel pen to put the little white dots. Good idea!!
