W2SB - Gratitude & Kindness

I'm here with a card I finally got around to making for the W2SB challenge which, this month, is Gratitude and Kindness.  I had this image colored for eons so I pulled it out and then had the bright idea to do a background for it.  My image was done on watercolor paper so I decided to use some Sparkling H2O-S for the background as well as a Sharpie White Pen and a Copic Marker.   I'm not happy with how it came out, but I'm going to have to live with it because the end of the month is coming fast and I really wanted to be able to enter a card into this challenge.  I love to play along with W2SB but was not able to for the last 4 months, so I desperately wanted to start again this month.

I already stopped by W2SB and saw all the entries and the DT's card and they are all fabulous, so why don't you take a minute to stop over there and hopefully you'll join in on the fun.  

I think this is a retired SU! image, but to tell you the truth I don't know for sure.  The papers and card stock are by SU! and the sentiment is by Gina K Designs.  The small flower was made with a MS punch and I added a pearl drop for the center.  As you can see I rounded the corners on the top just for a different look.  

I'm wishing you all a great day today and want to thank you for taking the time to visit.  


  1. Hi, Donna.

    First of all, it's so great to hear from you! Hope all is well.

    And, it is always good to see one of your cards. Think you're being a bit too hard on yourself. Your image is lovely, and the design is perfect to showcase this pretty flower.

    Thanks so much for joining us this month at Words 2 Scrap By -- and for your kind words about our blog. :)

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

  2. It's beautiful and I LOVE everything about that background behind the rose! A very lovely card Donna!!!

  3. How pretty!!! I love your creative background work, and yes - that's definitely a retired SU! image! It's called Bloomin' Beautiful and I regret not buying it while it was available! I just love that tiny flower accent on the sentiment panel that finishes this card up perfectly!
    Enjoy your family and time spent cooking this weekend! I know you're happy to get back into the swing of things after leaving all that sickness behind (finally!)
