Sending Some Sunshine

That's what our challenge is this month for the August Diva Dare at the Verve Stamps blog: to make a card that is encouraging and cheerful and actually send it out.  Here's my entry, and it will be sent out to my chemo patient on Monday:


supplies: white card stock, green gingham from Cosmo Cricket "Material Girl" mini deck, Verve "Bloom and Grow" and "Believe" sets, worn lipstick, spiced marmalade and mustard seed distress inks, Hero Hues grass chalk ink, versafine onyx black ink, various pink, gold and green pearls

I used my 2 Verve sets Bloom & Grow and Believe.

I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp & Show "Anything Goes" challenge - there's a huge prize!!
