Fred She Said Goes to the Teaparty

Today's card and envelope was the product of a challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers called Teapot Tuesday and a time to play with some Fred She Said images. You can find out all about it by clicking here. I love to play this challenge as the purpose is to send our cards to a total stranger who is dealing with mostly health issues.
This week we are sending our card to a 22 year old new Mom who is going to be away from home for a month receiving "killer chemo". Our mission was to make a CAS card and a kit for Lindsey to make a card just like the one we sent her so she can send it on to her loved ones. In other words, we are going to make a card maker out of her....lol Oh Ladies CAS is just not in my vocabulary....and something I just can't do!!! This is as close as I can get. So what you see above is my card and envelope and in the cello bag is my kit. I was thinking that Lindsay may not have a lot of tools to work with, so I did everything except put this together. I distressed, cut, layered and paper clip everything together in the order she needs to do it.

Now for the recipe:
My image is from "Fred She Said" called Fall Flower Collection. My sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers.
Spellbinders: Round Scalloped Nesties, Circle Nesties, Parisian Motifs
Punch: Martha Stewart Butterfly
Misc: Pearls, Sage Distress Ink, Stickles, Ribbon, Brad

This is one of those easel cards that has the extra piece added on with a brad. I hope you like it. If you find it in your heart to bring joy into a strangers life, come and join us at the Teapot Tuesday Challenge at SCS. It's lots of fun. See you again soon. I have more Fred She Said images that I have been working on and more Mark's Finest Papers this weekend!

Flowers and butterflies -- I'm a happy girl :) Gorgeous framing of the flower and addition of the butterflies - perfect for grounding the easel card :) Love the colour combo and I'm sure they will bring joy to the recipient and lift her spirits amidst her treatments. Wonderfully done!

Beautiful card and what a great idea. If this wonderful card can't make a card maker out of her, nothing will!!! Such a thoughtful thing to do.
