A card can say a thousand words...

Long ago, when a group of women and I were either stalking/members of/just offhandedly viewing a wedding livejournal site in hopes of getting married one day a set of us bonded so well we created our own group. Amazingly enough, that group is still strong and active to this day.

We have cried each others tears, jumped for joy, banded together to hope for good news for another and supported each other throughout hard times. The most amazing part is that we come from literally every possible career out there and every corner of the world.

And now one of them is in desperate need of cheering up - she learned recently that she had cancer.

Today's inspiration is from Case Study : Case Study Challenge 101, in particular the interpretation by Debby Hughes.

The two flowers are cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (exclusively through CTMH) and I used a rock and roll technique so that the bird you see has darker edges and wingtips. First you stamp your image in a lighter color, then rock and roll the edges of your images in a darker color. 

I was waiting for just the right card to use something from the Bling assortment, and this one was totally perfect. 

I simply stamped the inside with the sentiment from the set Find Your Style (retired) and left it at that. Sometimes simpler is so much more elegant.
