Here is a Lullaby to make you Feel Better


In  lots of way, recovery from an illness is like losing weight. One gets sick overnight, or so it appears, and then it can take a long time to recover fully well. Let's not talk about the weight part of this analogy. Since my son was able to catch a break and is doing better, I decided to use both the Sweet Sketch Sunday Challenge 231 and The Paper Players 208 to prepare today's card.

I cannot part with the Perfectly Penned stamp set now retired. I am happy, however, to use the new and beautiful DSP papers. The Lullaby is simply lovely and the Confetti Celebration gives texture and a touch of warmth to the card.

Tips and Tricks:
  • To obtain the banner cut on the strips, I use the Hexagon punch by simply sliding the strip of paper into the punch right in one of the points intersections and punch. A banner is born!
  • While it is perfectly fine to use a blank piece of card stock as a background, I chose texture for an added interest.
  • The tiny flowers from Something to Say add a special touch, don't you think?
