WWC270 - Tristan's Challenge: Anything Goes with a Feminine Twist

Hello and welcome.  This week is all about "feminine" cards at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Tristan is our hostess.  It seems there is more uncertainty and stress in 2020 so I made a "Hang in There" card to send out during this time of quarantine.
My Monthly Hero May 2019 kit
I had some leftover die cut circles that I thought would be fun to use as small spotlight backgrounds.  I used botanicals from the Hero Arts May 2019 kit and the wreath from WPlus9 New Home.  I stamped, Copic Colored and die cut the images and then mounted on the stitched circles.  I die cut (The Greetery Crimped Frame die) a piece of vivid egg shell blue cardstock and glued onto an A2 card.  
I think this is a cheery and encouraging card that I've already put in the mail to a family member.

I am playing along with the following challenges:

As You Like It - Non-Birthday Occasion During this quarantine I've been making encouragement cards for friends that live alone or seem to be struggling.  The cards have been well received so I have really enjoyed creating and mailing them. 

CAS on Friday - #179 Use Your Favorite Flower Stamp This Hero Arts Kit stamp and die set is one of my all time favorites.  The flowers are so versatile and fun.  

I am so pleased that you stopped by!
