I started with a piece of white using nesties to cut my layers. I sponged on my colors, daffodil, apricot, pumpkin and marina. I then stamped my image using Archieval ink. I put it on top of a paper doily. On my 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 card I used Versa Mark and stamped my flourish from Baroque Motifs. Made a tag and assembled. I think believing in miracles when you have cancer is very courageous, because I am sure that disease would test everything you believe.
This is for the HYCCT challenge and we were to make a card that meant courage to us.

Sylvia, you reached for some of my favorite elements in this beautiful design. Baroque motifs is an old favorite and Serene Silhouettes is a new favorite. Love, love that sunset which is always a peaceful inspiration. Thank you for playing today and contributing to our gallery of courage.

This is a great card and it has many wonderful design elements. I was immediately drawn to the ribbon treatment on your tag...Awesome and I may try to recreate that myself...Your sponging behind that great silhouette image is really striking. Wonderful job!
