A second entry for today's alpha challenge. I did an alcohol ink scene on glossy paper and cut it with a tree line die. An equivalent area was cut from a patterned bg and blue mat and card base and all three attached. A piece of vellum to fit the die cut was attached to the back of it and then both attached to the matted card base. Sentiment stamped in Memento teal zeal. Butterfly attached with dimensional pad. Standing the card open, I put a battery tea light inside, and it shines through the trees like a sun.
My youngest DD suffers from PTSD severely and called me this morning. After getting her settled down I made her this card. She can turn on the tea light when she's sad and remember she is stronger than she thinks and that mom loves her. TFL

Your card caught my eye as I was uploading a card, & had to come back to see it. Your card is SO LOVELY & after reading your details of this card, I was moved! I understand the PTSD thing, my husband has PTSD also. I think your DD will LOOOOVE THIS & the loving thought behind it! ;)

Ah, Kandie, I'm so sorry that your DD has PTSD. That's such a misunderstood condition, and I pray that she will find some peace it seeing this card and turning on the tea light. May God bless you and her! Hugs!

What a stunning card this is Kandie. And even more so now that I know the story behind it. Your daughter is very fortunate to have you for her mother. My heart goes out to her knowing she has PTSD. I hope that looking at all the love you put into this card will help her every time she looks at it. Hugs mf. ~Karen.
