Sharing Handmade Kindness

Happy Sunday!
Today I am sharing some handmade kindness with an unknown person who was diagnosed with cancer and only given 3 weeks to live, hope this card brings a smile when she receives it.
Being on vacation I totally forgot to post also for our current challenge at Addicted to CAS on Saturday so my card is for that also. 

To make my card I started with a top folding Bermuda Bay card base and a piece of watercolor paper. I stamped the Tree Ring from Concord & 9th in Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder, next I watercolored the inside with Peerless watercolors. I stamped the flower from the April My Monthly Hero Kit in Versafine black onyx ink and used Zig clean color real brush pens to watercolor it. I added white to the stamens and center of the flower with a white gel pen. The greeting is from the MMH April kit as well. 

I am also entering this one at Less is More
 for their color challenge of 
Turquoise & Lilac
