Friendship Day...

"Queen Bee" provided by Digital Delights
I am making this for my best friend who will soon be celebrating her 3 month checkup with her Oncologist. This last Pet scan should confirm she is "CURED" of her cancer.  The inside is stamped with one of my all time favorite rubber stamps... it reads:  "Never underestimate the power of this woman! 
She has gone from a stage 4, very large and very aggressive anal tumor to nada with a very aggressive chemo and radiation combo!  That and the power of her will!  Here's to you Rainey!

This card fits for the 613 Ave Create Challenge for Friendship Day! [Create something for a friend].  Do check out the makes of my mates on the DT and get the skinny on the rules of the challenge.  Info on the two sponsors [Digital Delights & Lacy Sunshine Stamps] and the prizes will also be found there.  

[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]
  • Starting with A2 size black CS base card with a left side fold and two layers of DP - all corners rounded with a Crop-a-Dial Corner Chomper.
  • On the top layer of DP I used a Cuttlebug strip e-Folder of three flowers.  I inked it up with 'Wild Honey' Distress Ink before embossing with it - making the yellowish trip down the right side.  A black Micron pen was used to make dots in the centers for contrast.
  • The image was colored with Copics and the body, wings and head were sculpted with a 2nd copy of the image, fussy cut and mounted on foam tape as seen to the right.
  • I used duo glue and gold foil on the crown and the multiple white dots & accents were created with Copic Opaque White in a Calligraphy Fineliner pen.
  • Three Candi Dots were placed to balance the composition.
  • The sentiment was stamped on the inside.
