Lovely Lenten Roses


This card is going to someone today who could use an extra word of love and encouragment in their recovery.  It's really not easy when illness is prolonged, so I wanted to send something cheerful...with this beautiful reminder from Psalm 46.  "Be Still and know that I am God".  

I had a lot of fun coloring this Flourishes Lenten Rose up on Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock with Copics and pairing it with this beautiful paper from Authentique - Gathering.  It's orange and soft blue tones were the inspiration for the palette. I've edged out parts of the design with my Spellbinders Classic Scallop Edgeabilties, and then accented with thin light blue/aqua velvet ribbon, some pretty peach Satin Finish Cotton ribbon, and finishing off with some facted hearts.  


Here's the Copic Collections I used:


+ BG09, BG93, BG96, BG0000


Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope it's a good Monday for each of you!  Our daughter has the day off so I'll be spending it doing some girl bonding with her!
