Color Dare Hello

I wanted to make a feminine card that I can give to my sister. It's rather generic so I can write an appropriate message inside. She's playing the waiting game between medical tests and doctor visits. She has a pituitary tumor and doesn't know yet what the surgeons will want to do depending on the size. She's constantly in my prayers. The unbelievable thing is that she's my second sister with a brain tumor. The positive thing is that the first one was removed without too many negative side effects.  I'd be happy for you to pray for my sister, Susan, too. Her health isn't good due to a muscular dystrophy that keeps her in a wheelchair much of the time.

I was inspired to make this card using the Color My Heart Color Dare #300:  Bashful, Pacifica, and Mink. I was also inspired to use more than two dies by the Crafty Cardmaker's Challenge. I cut the Bashful doily patterned paper from Beautiful Friendship using a doily piece die from Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlet. I added a Mink heart border with the CTMH heart border die and the retired CTMH "hello" die for the sentiment. I used Cricut Artbooking to cut two Bashful pieces. I stamped the CTMH doily-type pattern ("Sweet & Lovely" Artbooking Cricut Bundle stamp set) on the light side of the smaller one and matted it on the darker, larger piece. I stamped the pattern using Bashful ink, restamping two times to make it dark enough to show the lovely pattern. To embellish I added Bashful glitter paper and Bashful pearls.

Thank you for visiting! May you be blessed as you bless others with your creations.

Who is a God like you, who pardons iniquity,
and passes over the disobedience of the remnant of his heritage? 
He doesn’t retain his anger forever, because he delights in loving kindness.
