One-Layer Wednesday 86

Dinner was late tonight because I had to make a quick card, photograph it before the light completely left the sky, and link it to One-Layer Wednesday before 9 PM.  One-Layer Wednesday is the challenge that brought me into blogland; it's one of my favorites and I always try to participate.

For OLW 86, Susan has asked us to make a one-layer card that honors a woman in your life.  I used PTI round and round, which I picked up on eBay last year but have hardly used.  I experimented with different color combinations and found two that I liked well enough to photograph.



This card is for a friend of mine who has been struggling with a very serious illness.  Despite the difficulty of her life, she is always thinking about others.  Recently, she surprised me by having a bouquet of flowers delivered on my birthday.  She is such a lovely person and truly a wonderful friend.

Hiya, I've been bad and missed lots of your cards, but have now caught up with all the ones I have missed, they are ALL fabulous. It sounds like you have a lovely friend, but you must be too or she wouldn't be your friend.
