Thinking of You Card

This card was made for a 16 year old young man who is battling cancer.  As a mother of two young kids, I was overwhelmed with a lot of emotions while making this card.  This young man is a gem, has the most amazing personality, always has a smile on his face, the most compassionate, strongest, respectful, considerate 16 year old you will ever meet.  It has been a blessing for my family to know him.  

Although this was a simple card to make, it actually took me a while to put it together.  I finally realized that I would pour my heart out in words on the inside, rather than trying to come up with the perfect design on the outside.  


Stamped and embossed the sentiment, butterflies are from two of Martha Stewart's butterfly punches (Monarch and Royal butterfly) and I added pop dots to the butterflies for added dimension.  I also used pop dots for the sentiment.
