Card and prayers for Lynn

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your comments. I truly do appreciate all of you so much!

The card I'm sharing with you today has been created for a friend of a friend, Lynn, who has very recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer and given just months to live. Our mutual friend, Paula created a card for her and when I saw her card, created to brighten her remaining days, I immediately wanted to do the same...

The main image is the Blended Bloom stamp from Stampin' Up, which I've stamped in Memento black ink on Whisper White card and colored using Calypso Coral Blendabilities and the Strawberry Slush Stampin' Write marker. I've used stamps from the Work of Art set for the background and sentiment in Crumb Cake ink on another piece of Whisper White, which I layered onto a folded Crumb Cake card base. The finishing touches are Basic Pearls which I've colored with the Blendability markers. I've also stamped the Blended Bloom in Crumb Cake to add some detail to the inside of the card...
