There is a challenge on Splitcoaststamper's called the Traveling Teapot, and its goal is to make cards for someone who needs a bit of cheering up due to illness or other circumstances. One of my Favorites Teammates has a sister who is in the hospital awaiting serious eye surgery to remove an abscess behind her eye. The Teapot challenge team has decided to shower Angie's sister with get well cards from SCS members who wish to play in this challenge, and I, of course, wish to do that.
My card for Angie's sister is one I made from a design I received in a shoebox exchange held during our crafting Girls' Getaway. The card design and techniques used were from a dear friend and crafting cohert, Sandy Stroble. She showed us how to do the braided ribbon technique and also the tiled window. I had a difficult time with the braided ribbon because of my arthritic fingers, so she made several for ribbon strands for me to take home to use in the future. My card incorporates both of her design techniques, as well as a little butterfly stamped into the tiling technique. Take a peek below. . .I think Angie's sister will enjoy her card!
