Forever Friends Favorite Embellishments

At Forever Friends this fortnight, the challenge is to use your favorite embellishment.  Well, me being me,......someone who does not make decisions.......cannot really decide what my favorite is! We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge... Meljens and Whoopsi Daisy.  I  picked one of the  images offered to us from  Meljens.  I am still learning the art of trying to color digis with copics and didn't smear this one so much so guess I am learning little by little.  lol  My sister had surgery this past Friday and I thought this image would work well for a get well card. I think the hardest part of making this card was cutting out around the image.   I wanted to make it a clean and simple card so did not add one of my favorite!  I did dig out the embossing folders, which I rarely let out of their box, and made the white background. The patterned papers are from a new little 6x6 pad from My Mind's Eye.  I think it is an older pad but I just got it so it is new to me!  lol   I did ink the edges and sewed around them which are two of my favorite embellishments.  Then came stickles which is at the top of my list on favorites too.  I used two different MS punches for the borders and a Nestie die for the sentiment.  The image and the sentiment are popped for a more 3-D look.  Finishing it off with a large bow, I called it done.  I so hope it will bring some cheer to my sister.  She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and needs lots of prayers.  My brother was diagnosed with lung cancer just before Christmas so Please keep them both  in your thoughts and prayers.  Thank you so much for stopping by and thank you even more if you take a moment to lift my family members up to our Lord for healing.  Hugs to all and God bless each of you.
