WOC #40 - Anything Goes

Welcome to the first Wild Orchid Challenge for 2012!  Since it's the beginning of the year and everyone is still recuperating from the holidays we thought we would start out with an easy challenge for you all....this week's challenge is ANYTHING GOES!  It doesn't get easier than that! :)  Make sure you read the Wild Orchid Challenge Rules -->HERE<-- so that your entry qualifies for the lovely prize!
Unfortunately this Christmas was sad for our friend's family.  Our friend lost his mother due to cancer on the early morning of Christmas.  This is the card that I made for him and his family.  Papers are from Kaisercraft Chanteuse.  MS punch border has been blinged with Self Adhesive Rhinestones in pink.  Top right corner was accented with a metal decorative corner.
Image and sentiment are from the Verve Forever in our Hearts collection.  I love the sentiments that this stamp set as.  Small Sequin butterflies were popped up with foam tape.  Image edges were glitzed with Star Dust Stickles.
Wild Orchid Craft flower arrangement consists of: Carnations, 15mm Roses, 10mm Rose, Sweetheart Blossoms, Gypsophilas, Stamens, and 20mm Leaves.
The inside of the card uses more of this beautiful Kaisercraft paper!  I love this flocked frame!  Sentiment was cut out using a SB Labels 22 and was airbrushed while still in the die.  Then I took the scroll from the SB Fleur de Lis Motifs set and created a beautiful frame for this sentiment.
I hope that this card let our friend know how much we are thinking of him during this difficult time!  His mom truly was an amazing person who is no longer suffering and is now in peace.

Make sure you head over to the Wild Orchid Craft Challenge Blog to see what the other amazing DT members have made!
