Although it was a busy Sunday, I decided to carve out some time to make a card tonight. I wanted to thank my best friend who, while I was visiting NY, came with her baby to visit me. She drove a long way to see me and I am so grateful she made the trip. The card is also extra special to me because two days after I saw her, NY got hit with Superstorm Sandy and my best friend was without power for 8 days. There aren't enough words to describe how worried I was about her and her family. And I'm beyond grateful to God for sparing her family and her home from any damage.
I gathered my color inspiration from the current challenge at the CR84FN site. The colors really got my attention and, for some reason, I envisioned the card very easily. Also, because it was a "thank you" card, I am entering it into the latest challenge on the Simon Says Stamp & Show site, too. AND, because it's for my best friend, Tricia, I am also posting it on the Cute Card Thursday site that wanted us to make a challenge for "Girls Only".
Here is the color badge from CR84FN and my card:
Hope you all had a great Sunday and thanks so much for stopping by!
