Been a SCS member for a couple of years, yet this is my first addition here as I've not been a regular blogger. The Falliday Fest banner led me here and I was inspired to join the fun with my first joy fold card. This card is for my SIL in Toronto, a victim of terminal ovarian cancer. Made the card in shades of lavender the colour that represents all cancers.
The awareness ribbon was stamped on acetate and fussy cut. Then partly coloured in a blue Chameleon pen to depict water and shaped with a flower tool for dimension. The arrangement was made with die cut leaf sprigs coloured with a green Chameleon pen, quilled roses and tiny flowers from a border punch. The vase was secured in place with the glue pen and leaves. The card was finished with the stamped sentiment label adhered in place with foam tape and a dimensional yellow butterfly (to symbolize hope) to hold the card corner.
The scripture verses and healing petition on the inside of the card were computer generated. Image of the card inside is uploaded on my SCS gallery. More images on my blog along with links to the verses and petition images.

First of all, I am so very sorry about your SIL's battle in terminal ovarian cancer. She is going to love this card and the wonderful Scripture verses of encouragement. This is beautiful and so very touching!
It's the start of your gallery, and what a beautiful way to start your gallery - with this card and in joining the Falliday Fest. I look forward to seeing more of your work and hope you'll continue to join in with more challenges. So glad Falliday Fest lured you in!
P. S. You might want to go to the Forum, "Start Here" and get familiar with SCS. Here's a direct link.

I am so sorry to hear about your SIL. What a fantastic card you created for her. Love those stunning dimensional flowers and love the papers and layout too. This fold works so wonderfully with your card too.
