Wonderful Botanicals

I made this card for my wonderful Grandma. She is 93, and just found out that she has a small fracture in her neck (brittle bones). She is such a trooper though... as she must be in such terrible pain, yet doesn't dwell on it.  She will be in a neck brace for 4 weeks, so that it can properly heal. I pray that the healing is quick and that the pain that she does have goes away. Love you Gram!

I used the words from the 'Rose Wonder' stamp set and the Botanical Builders Framelits to create the flowers and leaf border.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets - Rose Wonder
Ink - Mossy Meadow
Paper - Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Real Red, So Saffron, Hello Honey, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Soft Sky, Island Indigo
Accessories - Big Shot, Botanical Builder Framelits, glue dots, Big Shot Die Brush
