Get Well Sunflowers Card

I explained on my previous post how I needed to take my mind off of the pain and illness of auto-immune attacks this week. Here's my second card to take my mind off of how I feel and think about someone else who is ill. One of my crafty friends who moved away two years ago is just finishing radiation this week for lung cancer, so I'm thinking of her with this card.
I used Copics to color this image from Power Poppy stamps. You probably already know that coloring is therapeutic! It sure beats focusing on headaches, arthritis, etc.
The sunflowers at Just Us Girls this week helped inspire this cards. Fall colors with golds, oranges and browns were perfect for this variety of flowers. The photo inspiration at Time Out Challenge inspired me to make the vase gray and use a lined dark gray paper background like the wall around their fall window view.

Thank you for visiting! May God bless you with ways to get your mind off of yourself when you don't feel well. Cardmakers have a special way to make their craft a double blessing - for themselves and others!
