Card for Edith (AAA card challenge #10, Mojo Monday #353)



Hi everyone!





Here to post a very special card I made last night for a lady called Edith.  Please hop on over to my friend MaryH's blog post HERE to find out why we are making cards for Edith.  Maybe you would like to make a card for her, too.  My card is on it's way to New York, to bring some sunshine for Edith.


This is the card I have made for her:




The panel with the drywall tape is on foam tape, as is the coloured bg panel and the watercoloured flowers.  The bg for my flowers I've made using Distress Inks and water on my craft sheet.
The flower stamps is from a local craft shop, Great Impressions, the 'Leaf-filled Flourish' die from MFT and the sentiment stamp from Verve.


The layout for Edith's card was inspired by Julee's Mojo Monday sketch for the week.
I'm also linking Edith's card to the AAA Blog where we are to play with watercolour techniques this week.






I hope this card will brighten Edith's day when she receives it!!!

Thanks for popping in - always a pleasure to have you here!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards
Petra

So sweet to give a card like that to someone. I like it. It's a little busy (compared to what I've seen so far) but comes in as Nearly CAS. That flower stamp is killer! Just love to see what you bring us each week. Big hugs, Victoria- AAA Cards
