A card for someone special.

I made a card today for a lady I know who has just found out she has life threatening cancer.
The image is from Mo Manning at
'Digital Pencil Too' and is called 'sorry Shana'.
I used Whisper White card stock from SU, brown card stock from Bazzil. The flowered design paper is an old one from Creative Imaginations called Grandma's Garden and the almost solid design paper is from SU.

I have seen this cute sketch around about on several blogs but don't know where it originated - sorry! The ribbon is from my stash as are the flowers. I sprayed the two white roses with the new SU Smooch Spritz called Vanilla Shimmer. I used a MS punch for the leaf fronds, and for the inside.
I coloured with Copics as usual and will have a picture at the bottom of the ones I used. Sorry for not writing what I used where tonight. I haven't much time. I coloured my image on Cryogen White ( so sparkly ) paper and used Crystal Lacquer on
'Shana's' boots and her tiny heart necklace.
Here are a few close ups:

The left side of the card is plain so I can write a letter in it - but have a picture of the right side with the verse from
'Papertrey Ink'.

Here are the Copics I used:

Thank you so much for paying me a visit today :o)
Love, Candy
