Denise *Day 2*

This card by Denise has such a soft and simple elegance! I love the way she has stamped the floral image as if it is cascading down and across the background!
Here's my take: The background was stamped with Penny Black 3645K Modesty and colored with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft PITT Artist Pens. The sentiment, Penny Black 3852E, was stamped on a Spellbinders Die Cut. Both the background and die cut sentiment piece were inked with Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.

And just a quick update on Toffee. He is feeling better with each day on meds, minus a few ups and downs. Unfortunately our St. Bernard, Dafne, is having the same symptoms so she is being treated as well. The vet still thinks they must have both eaten something that made them sick or they have a flu bug. We are hoping that in 2 days they will be better, if not we will be moving on to our next step which will include a full panel of bloodwork. Thanks so much for your continued prayers and positive thoughts. Both my husband and I TRULY appreciate your kindness! HUGS, HUGS, HUGS!

Great report on Toffee! Now let's hope Dafne makes the same quick recovery. I love your card, the flowers cascading down are so pretty!

Poor Dafne & Toffee, hope they both make a full recovery soon!
I absolutely loved Denise's card when I first saw it, straight into my favorites, what can I say yours is just as stunning, I really like your colour choices for all the flowers in the background.

Wow... I have so many stamps like this that I can use for the background and cascading them down diagonally is just a great idea. Tks for sharing... love to Toffee and continued recovery!

I'm so sorry to hear about Toffee and Dafne. Pets are just like kids so I know how hard it can be while they're sick. I'll send good thoughts your way.
