Today's card is for a colleague who is undergoing prostate cancer treatment. He is halfway through treatment and I thought he could you a bright, yet masculine card pick-me-up from the gang at the office. I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge as a starting point and incorporating a tree fits today's Cute Card Thursday challenge.
The background layer and horizontal strip is Stampin' Up Certainly Celery. The remaining paper is Martha Stewart Playful Blue and Stampin' Up Whisper White. The blue layer and green strip were textured with Cuttlebug's Leafy Branch embossing folder. The embellishments are Peggy's Pretties. The image is Gina K Tree Silhouettes. The sentiment is Annabelle Sentimental Bluebells.
I love this card. I think it will be perfect for my colleague and I hope it will brighten his day. I just love the tree image, I've not used it before but I will certainly use it more often now.
I hope you enjoy this sketch and come back to SPI again soon.
