My First Whiff of Joy Card

I purchased this stamp by Whif of Joy from All That Scraps a week or so ago, with a special purpose in mind. My dear friend Lynn, LOVES Angels and I saw this stamp and had to get it to make a card for her. Lynn is having surgery on Thursday. This will be her third major surgery in the past year and we are all praying it's her last! Lynn is one of those people that the moment you meet them you know they are special. I am so Blessed to call her my friend and have her in my life. She sits next to me at work and I'm going to miss her the next few weeks while she's recouperating. Lynn... I love you and am praying for you.

Here is the card I made for Lynn...













Here's a close up of the colored image. I really love how it turned out because it was my first time embossing the stamped image. Not only does it make the card look so much better, it makes the coloring so much easier and vibrant.



















I used SU Certainly Celery as my card base and the DP is Basic Grey Two Scoops. I used my nestabilites to cut out the image and the mat around the stamped image. I used Copic Markers to color the image and used some Stickles to add a little bling.

Thanks for looking and stopping by!
