Sending Get Well Hugs & Wishes

Hi everyone! I'm back today as a guest designer for Inkspirations by Makeesha Byl. This week is Inspiration Challenge #17; a very lovely table setting.

I was inspired mainly by the branches and the lovely vanilla, white, and kraft colors. The wine glasses in the photo inspired me to use rhinestones as flower centers. I used my Big Shot to cut "branches". Even though the inspiration photo doesn't have dots, I was drawn to this paper again. I cut the paper in a shape that reflects the table shape.

Here are the other design team members:

I made this card for my Aunt Christine. I've mentioned her before. She was in the hospital last week because of pneumonia. She's been fighting a rare form of breast cancer (Inflammatory Breast Cancer) for a few years. During a PET Scan, they discovered that she had fractured a few ribs from the violent coughing. She'll also have to start some stronger chemo very soon. Inflammatory Breast Cancer is a strong enemy, my dears!

Stamps: Big & Bold Wishes (Papertrey Ink)

Thank you for sharing you thought process for this card, I've looked at a number of other entries and couldn't quite work out how they got their inspiration from the picture, but you've given me a fresh way to look at it. And a beautiful example. Wishing your Aunty a speedy recovery.
