I have been completely in love with this card since I set eyes on it. Betsy Veldman is my favorite DT Member!!! Below is the picture of her gorgeous card from the PTI Gallery:
I tried my best on my card but I had to leave some things off. My card just didn't look right with ribbon and a bow on it. It was way too busy. I also left off the second set of vellum flowers. I almost didn't want to put the vellum over the flower at all!! I am not very good with copics but when I was done, I was happy with the outcome. It was almost painful to cover it up!!
I'm going to give this card to a sweet lady that I met at a church function. You know when you meet someone and you immediately connect with them? Not only did I connect with her, I absolutely fell in love with her. She was full of such energy and vim and vigor. She was the sweetest lady to me and my girls. After talking to her for a while, she told me that she was 79. I was completely in awe! I would love to have her energy and attitude at that age! I am giving this to her because we left behind my daughter's sweater and she tracked me down to let me know. And the next week at church she brought a bag full of puppy toys for Buddy. So I wanted to thank her. I'll give it her on Sunday. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
