Here for you....

Just a quick post.  I have been missing the Colour Me card challenge DT, so thought I'd play this week and link up.  Here is the inspiration:
Such fun colors and the pic is amazing!  Love the thought of being somewhere tropical and watching the flamingos!


My card is not quite as lighthearted as the photo, but I hope that it lifts someone special up.  I am sending this to my Uncle, who is having surgery in a few days to hopefully remove cancer.  Please send him good vibes!  He is such a stoic man and doesn't complain or ask for help, so I am asking for him.  For my Aunt too, who supports him through his trials.  



This card is made with a Terrarium stamp from the PaperSource.  I colored it with my Copics and mounted it on some old SU! DP.  The sentiment from Impression Obsession is so touching, I couldn't resist when I saw it at my local scrapbook store, so snatched it right up.  I am so glad I did, this is the perfect occasion to use it.  I used a Paper Smooches die for the fram and tied some ribbon around the inside DP from Amuse.  Finally I added the bright and sparkly sequins from Neat and Tangled for a little extra kick.  The bright shiny touch makes me think that hope is on the horizon.

That's all, thank you for stopping today and sending my family good vibes.  Don't forget to head over to Colour Me to check out what is going on there!
