a gift for a poorly friend using flower fairies

this is a card i have made for a friend who is going through rather a rough time at the moment

she has just been diagnosed with breast cancer and has just started her treatment
as i can't physically do anything for her i thought i would make her something just to let her know how much we are thinking of her

i know she will appreciate a hand made item so thought i would go to town and make her something quite special that she can keep and when she looks at it she will know we are thinking of her and wishing her well again and back to her old self

hope you ladies like it
i made the card with 2 8x8 card joined with both fronts scalloped so when closed looks like a wrap
i have decorated the front but spritzing it with ink and mica then stamped with a mixture of silhouette stamps then when it opens up i have made a couple of fairy scenes the lavender fairy on the right and the almond blossom on the left in the centre i have used a piece of vellum with foxgloves on and made a couple of mats with sayings on
when closed the ribbon wraps around the front and ties in a bow
really enjoyed making this hope you like it
