"A special friend"

Good afternoon!

In order to keep some activity going as I deal with certain physical restrictions, I made sure I participated in the Swirlydoos Card Round Robin. I was so inspired with the March Maja Mood board because I knew the colors would create a challenge for me.  So my card represents both challenges. For my team, I decided to make a pocket card with a tag inside. Of course, a challenge wouldnt be right without twists to add to the mix of designing a card.

So for this challenge, I was able to complete 4 of the 5 twists for the Swirlydoos Card RR. So, here is my actual card:

I used Maja Crea paper line, baby blue Bazzill cardstock, prima packaging, packaging from a box, and cheesecloth. Also, I used something old from my stash, jenni bowlin labels and petaloo flower. I tried making quill flowers on the front for the homemade flower twist and a handwritten sentiment for the other twist.

For my tag, I created a resist background with an old tattered angel stamp set from an old kit with Lindy's magic moon pearls embossing powder and rockafella blue shimmer mist. I added a staple where I attached the ribbon. I was able to meet the staple and resist technique twists.

The resist was hard to photograph so I attached a close up picture also. Thank you for taking the time of of your day to visit my blog. Have a blessed day!
