Yellow Roses of Hope

Today my card is for my Sister Cassy whose 2 week old baby, Henry, is seriously ill in hospital. Yellow roses symbolise hope, joy, and caring, so convey everything I want to say to her in a card. I will also be entering it into two challenges.

 First is Mojo Monday with this sketch,

and, Colour Throwdown with these colours

This is my card

I started by randomly stamping the yellow flowers and green leaves on the top half of a white base, and then covering the other half with embossed blue card. I then stamped a yellow rose, a rose bud, and two leaves on some white card and cut them out. 
With the Big Shot I cut and layered the scallop circle and label, and embossed a strip of yellow card. These were stuck in place with 3D pads, and the flower and sentiment added. The finishing touches were the butterfly with gem body, blue flag, blue and yellow gems in opposing corners.

Supplies :
Card = Black, Daffodil Delight, Naturals White, Blue and White base FMS
Stamps = Stippled Blossoms, Baby Blossoms, and Cute Companions Sentiment
Inks = Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, and Brilliant Blue
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Fancy Fan and Dots EF, and Elegant Butterfly Punch
Extras = 3D pads and gems

We are all really worried about little Henry, so I hope this bright card will bring some cheer to Cassy and Russell while he is in hospital having tests done. I've got my fingers and toes crossed that he will be allowed home very soon.

Thanks for dropping by today, and please send positive thoughts to Cass, Russell, and of course, Henry.
