Raspberry Suite Challenge #13

Hello everyone!! I hope everyone's weekend is off to a good start.

This card is for a challenge. I love challenge, they give me a head start on what I am going to do.

It is a bitter sweet card since I made it with my MIL in mind. She found out a couple of weeks ago that she had lung cancer and had to go through a procedure that would be risky for her. She made it through that to find out a few days ago that her cancer was incurable and was the aggressive kind. It has already spread to her liver. She is in good spirit and says the Lord is who she is depending on now to get her through the chemo and anything else she might have to endure. She also says that she has people praying for her and we sure could use all that she can get right now. She goes next week for a catscan to see how much it has spread and how aggressively they need to treat the cancer. Hopefully to get her into remission for a very long time. I don't usually put things out there like this, but this is something that I needed to talk about.

Now, on to the card. I made this for Dawn's McVey's color challenge. She has some good color choices and it makes you think how you can put the colors together. These colors are PTI Berry Sorbet, Pure Poppy, Spring Moss and White. I crocheted the flowers with DMC floss to match the pure poppy color and also stamped the Fancy Flourish in Pure Poppy On Berry Sorbet CS. The scallop border is Martha Stewart and I put tiny pearls on each scallop. I also used the pure poppy floss for in between the two colors. The buttons are from the Spring Moss Vintage buttons and ties with spring moss floss. The sentiment is from Everyday Blessings stamped in Berry Sorbet. I thought is was perfect to let her know that she is in our prayers.

Thank you for stopping by today!!
Have a good one,
