Good Luck Card

My osteopath is moving premises later today - I thought it was next week - so I shall have to drop this card at her premises for her for first thing tomorrow morning.  Her current room is inside a dentist - not good for someone like me who is nervous about seeing the dentist especially as I have got an hour long appointment at my own dentist scheduled for Thursday lunchtime!!!  Her new premises is above an estate agents and opposite the prison!!!  

For my card I have used one of my favourite Sweet Pea Stamps by Caron Vinson called Royal Flower.  She is very elegant looking.  I decided to do a monochrome blue card and have used scraps of Crafty Ann's abstract papers from a Design Team card I have made for a few weeks' time.  The frame I cut out with a Spellbinders frame which I got in some card candy.  The image I coloured in with promarkers and then used my Tim Holtz's Broken China distress ink pad to distress the edge of the image and the frame.  The card is then finished off with some lace, flowers, gems, personalised insert, ribbon and a Good Luck sentiment which I think is from an Andy Carolann CD.

Hiya Kym,

How are you hunny?

Thank you for joining us at Kelley Kid's on our very first challenge!

What a great card , I so love that Caron Vinson image!
The cool blues and pale liliac's that you have used adds to the elegance of a great image.

Your shading and toning is great,I love this card!

Oh dear - well at least you are not next to a dentist when you go to your Osteopath?
And any change is for the better there - i do not like going to the dentist either - a stresser for a lot of peeps!

Anyone would be delighted to be giving this amazing card!

Have a great day!

Take care
Big Hugs
