Aloha all, hope you are having a good week.  I have a friend who is going through a tough patch at the moment and I wanted to send her a card to try and cheer her up and also to let her know that I am thinking of her.  Sometimes receiving a card can really help a person ~ just letting them know they are not alone and being thought of is a bit of comfort.

I strayed from my usual "plain" style and went a bit fancier than normal.  It was fun to do something a bit different.  The background paper is from blog candy I won from Paper Craft Planet.  It's such pretty paper by Riddersholm Designs.  I added part of a doily that I inked, a pearl and rhinestone flourish, a bit of lace, paper roses, a spray of pearls with a ribbon and a sentiment stamped on card stock cut out with my Cuttlebug.

Enjoy the rest of your week, and send someone a card to let them know you care!
