I am in love with the new ODBD Lavender set that's in the January release. Audrie gave us an amazing color palette website this morning to use as inspiration. I chose the pallet called mineral hues. It gave me all the gorgeous purples and a dusty green to play with.
This card will be going to a very dear friend who is on her winter break out in Arizona. She's found out she has breast cancer and will be having surgery before she returns to Ohio in April. The lavender stickles give the lavender stems a little dimension and I've added a touch of lavender essential oil to the ribbon so when she opens the card she will have a bit of aroma therapy as well as the tea bag that I put in all of my cards. Both she and her husband have a very strong faith and will rely on that to see them through this ordeal.
Great website Audrie............it's now in my favorites.

Oh GASP! This is so beautiful!!! I almost went with this inspiration photo myself! You really did a beautiful job with it, and I just love your lavender images and how beautifully you colored them! So sorry for your friend and will say a prayer for her as well! Surely this card will bring her some peace in this difficult time... as will the prayers of others! Beautiful and thoughtful card!!!
