Soar, Friend!

Yay! I finally got to play with the Wings papers and stamps featured in Close To My Heart's January Inspirations. (Click on the sidebar link for more info.)

This card is for my good friend, Wendy, who is quite a trooper, now into her fifth year of chemo treatments for lung cancer. She was never a smoker. She thought she had a touch of flu. And BAM! What a diagnosis. But what a strong-faithed, strong-willed woman she is, and a courageous live-er of daily life. She's a positive Christian model for everyone who knows her. She soars above and through adversity. She looks at every cup as overflowing.

The Wings colors are so rich, and butterflies are right at the top of my favorites. I'm lovin' the stitched, pleated ribbon too--a new product from CTMH.

I added a touch of Prisma Glitter to the butterfly's layered wings, and when I use glitter, it's glitter, glitter, EVERYwhere!  Now I'm heading to church and then to the music store...let's see if I get any comments about how I sparkle & shine today.

More to come! Thanks for stopping to look!

Hi Jane!
I LOVE this card!! The 3-d butterfly is amazing - I just want to touch it so badly! LOL

You are an inspiration, too - that you support, recognize, encourage - your friend (and I) are very lucky to know you!
