Calling All Sistahs

Today’s card was inspired by the current challenge over at Calling All Sistahs.

As you may know from previous posts, my mother is currently battling pancreatic cancer, so these challenges are close to my heart and I long for a day that they discover a cure but for my mother it may be too late.

I decided to use a stamp that has been languishing at the back of my stamp collection, Stampin Up’s Swallowtail. I stamped it in Versamark and used a Lindy’s Stamp Gang EP called ‘Angel Wings Gold’. It has a stunning goldish shimmer when you angle the card in the sunshine. I than wet my card front and added some Colour Bursts in Indigo and Orchid. I love using these powders but must admit I struggle to keep myself and my work surface clean when I do so!

My sentiment is from a set by CAS-ual Fridays called ‘Sassy Smiles’ and I hope it encourages my mum to continue to be strong.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.

  1. very stunning Tristan. Your Mum will love it… very encouraging. Today is Daffodil Day here in NZ – we donate to Cancer Research and get a daffodil to wear. Having lost MIL and three SIL’s to this insidious disease, I always support this. Sending hugs to your Mum

  2. This is am amazing card. The purple background has so much movement. I love images stamped off the edge and this butterfly works a treat. I don’t think you can stay clean using these powders! I am sure your Mum will smile when she see this. Thanks for joining Calling All Sistahs
