Flash Back Friday…a Day Late

What a crazy week this has been!! Snow days, doctors' appointments for both Charlotte and I, minor surgery on Charlotte's ear and a girls night out hosted at my house last night. No wonder I am late with this post!!

I am actually disappointed in myself because I issued the challenge over at It was to create a card using any OLD supply that you had. It could have been paper, stamps, stickers, etc. To say I am a bit of a "collector" is an understatement. I have a store in my room. So for me, this challenge was quite easy.

I modeled my card over an old Nichole Heady card that I saw on Pinterest. However, I had to make it my own. First, for my OLDEST supply, I used one of the first stamps I ever bought from Stampin Up! (Script-retired) with Kraft ink stamped onto vanilla card stock. I then cut the piece of stamped paper into a 2" by 4 1/4" strip and adhered it onto an Aqua Mist card base. I then cut a few scraps from my drawer into small strips, inked them and adhered them to the card.

Next I cut a 3" by 3" of Kraft card stock and stamped a Mehndi Medallion using Kraft ink. Next I layered images and a sentiment using Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy and Smokey Shadow ink. Using foam adhesive, I then adhered the square to the background card. My last step was to use Diamond Stickles o add a little more zing to the inside of the flowers.

This card is for a dear woman who lost her husband this week to leukemia. It was very unexpected and I have been heart sick over her loss all week. How I detest cancer and cannot believe with all our science we have not figured out a way to prevent it. I know that each case is unique but I can still wish!

Thank you for stopping by today. I will be posting another project momentarily to join in for Paper Trey Ink's seventh anniversary.

So pretty! The little touch of red and sparkle with the other colours is unusual and delightful. It's a darling card.

I love how you layered the stamps on this card Nora.
