An RAK for a friend

I found out a couple of days ago that my blogging sistah, Lori's mom is in the hospital. I decided to send her a card. When my mom was in the hospital, it meant alot to her to recieve cards from my friends at SCS. It really perked up her spirits. She still proudy displays each and every one of them in her room at the nursing home.
This is the card that I made to send her. It was inspired by a beautiful card that I recieved in a swap from cbcardcreations (SCS). I added a few details to give it my own touch, but the color and content are the same.

This is one of my favorite SU sets, Natural Beauty. The main image is heat embossed and then watercolored using Mustard, Navy and Olive and then stickled (is that really a word?). I added some sponging, ribbon and primas and the sentiment (Sincere Salutations). I really love the bold colors.

I gotta sign off now. I'm off to the nail parlor with my DD. She has an awards banquet to go to tonight and needs to get her girl on.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, hopefully filled with stamping!

Stamps: Natural Beauty, SincereSalutations

Paper: Mustard, Black, White, Apricot

Inks: Black Pigment, Mustard, Navy, Olive

Accessories: Black Ep, Ribbon, Brads, Slot Punch, Piercer, Sponge, Watercolor Brush
