Thinking of You Card

Welcome to another Whimsical Wednesday.

Today's challenge is all about "Funky Folds"
Create a card that is anything but a shape or A2 style. Examples: easel, gatefold, waterfall

For my card I decided to make an Easel card.
The card I made is a sympathy card for my friend Katie who's mom died last week.

For this card I used the "Storybook"cartridge to cut out the image. The sentiment stamp Is from Hero Arts and the flower is from Petaloo. I used a Viva Decor pearl pen for the peals and the pattern paper is Basic Grey.

The sentiment on the bottom is from my computer and says: "Praying for friends to comfort you, faith to uphold you, and loving memories to heal your heart."

I hope you enjoyed my card and can't wait to see what "Funky Folds" you can come up with for this weeks challenge.

This week we have two prizes. The first one is a package of action wobbles from our Whimsical Designer Glora.
Thank you Glora for sponsoring us with these fun scrappy wobbles:)

Now head on over to the Whimsical Wednesday blog to see what the other amazing designers have come up with.
