Clean and Simple - Thinking of You

I have a few monthly Hostess Clubs that get together each month and create scrapbooking layouts using Close To My Heart's Workshop On the Go kits.  I started my first club about 4 years ago and over the years I have expanded into 4 clubs.   Some ladies have come and gone and some have been with me the entire time.   The ladies in my clubs are not just customers, they have become dear friends.  Not only to me, but to the other ladies in the club.

One of my club members had surgery this week.  She has a long road of more surgeries and healing ahead of her and I've been thinking of her alot this past week.  Today I sat down to make her a card to hopefully brighten her day.   I used this sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping for my card.   My colors were inspired by Close To My Heart's Flirty paper pack.   I used Goldrush, New England Ivy and Flirty Raspberry cardstock.    I decided to emboss the stamped image directly on top of the cardstock pieces.   For the background flower, I used cocoa ink and cocoa embossing power.  I stamped the large flower separately with cocoa ink and used Clear Detail embossing powder so that it would stand out. I trimmed out the flower and adhered it with foam tape.  The stamp is from the set that is included in the Flirty Workshop on the Go (G1050) kit.   The sentiment if from "Words Of Comfort" (C1524). Bitty Sparkles (Z1263) add the final touch.

I'm also submitting this card in CAS-ual Friday's challenge.
