This week's Tea Party is for 6 yr old Jannifer and her great grandmother and caregiver, Shirley. Shirley and Jannifer make a long taxi ride three times a week so Jannifer can get her much need dialysis. They leave the house at 4 a.m. and return 12 hours later. I can't even imagine. But it's clear that Shirley's heart is filled with LOVE for her great granddaughter.
I decided to use the same color scheme that I used on Jannifer's card. I had colored up three flowers, but it was just too busy. The card is straight forward: stamp, cut, glue. I thought the orange 'love" die cut was blah, so I cut it out again and colored with the bright pink Copic I had used in the flower. That didn't look right either. So I stacked them a bit offset so the pink peeks through behind the orange. I was much happier with that. And Shirley deserved some bling, so rhinestones were the finishing touch. I have to say my scanner makes the colors look dull; this is one of those cards that look better in real life.
I am so inspired by this story. I hope you find something inspiring in your day too. Thanks for stopping by and TFL.

I think that the changes that you made were great, the stacked orange and pink "love" are just right and add a lot of pizzaz! That one flower looks stunning and so does the bling. I think that Jannifer will think it's cool and her great-grandmother will feel your loving tribute and I hope that it will encourage and inspire her. I am praying for Jannifer right now!!!
This is truly lovely, your coloring for this floral image is really beautiful!!! I really don't color with copics well at all, your blending is WONDERFUL, I am impressed!!!
