Teapot Tuesday Flower Cart

I made this card for last Tuesday's Teapot Tuesday Destination Station #182 on  The lady was recently diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.  Here's some information about her.  Betty is having trouble with blood clots, liquid on the lungs which causes great pain and has difficulty breathing. After another medical procedure is completed, Betty will be released home shortly. The doctors are giving her about 3 months to live. Betty and her husband are strong believers in prayer and remain upbeat and optimistic.

Betty's nicname is Sunshine! She loves sunshine and she loves flowers! She loves sweet little girl images (Precious Moment's type) and she decorates her home with plaques displaying positive, faith based sentiments. Betty recently organized a group called "A Ray of Sunshine" to visit the hospitalized.

I thought this flower cart full of pretty flowers would be cheerful for her.   If you would like to join in, head on over to the thread and get her address.
The image is from SU Love Ya Bunches (retired) and the sentiment is from Technique Tuesdays set Glee.  The card base and mats are SU Blushing Bride and the dp comes from my favorite paper Prima Sparkling Spring.  The ribbon is from Martha Stewart and the flower is from my stash.  I used my SU oval punch and oval scalloped punch for the sentiment.

Of course I colored the image with my Copic markers:  B000, B12; RV10, RV11, RV13, RV14; Y17; YG07, YG09, YG11, YG13; W3, W4.

Thanks for coming by.  I appreciate your comments.  Have a wonderful weekend.
