Another card for today's Featured Stamper, Sabrina (Cook22)! If you have time today, come and play with us, even if you haven't done the challenge before, HERE is the link! HERE is the beautiful card I which inspired me. I used a new Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps set soon to be available in Korin's Stamps for a Cause series - The Gift of You has a huge variety of sentiments celebrating adoption (More info on my blog).
I had my Mum and Dad in mind when I made this card - they prayed for a wee baby to adopt over 40 years ago and got my little brother! My sister and I were staying with family friends when they traveled to pick him up and I still remember them coming in with that little bundle!
I used Sabrina's layout with the Nestie frame, but changed the flowers and color scheme, also adding some jute twine and a pearl.

Absolutely gorgeous, Bridget!!! I love the soft green sponged bg for your vibrant and lovely flowers. How do you get your multi-looped jute to look so perfectly formed? I love it with the pearl as your embellishment.

What a beautiful story, Bridget...and I love how your card so beautifully reflects it. Thank you so much for choosing Sabrina as FS this week. I know of no one else more deserving. Hugz and blessings for a joyous and peace-filled New Year.
