I will also be entering this in

Send a Card to a Friend Day Challenge
(Which was Wednesday, Feb. 7th!)

Found here: 

Whew! LOL
It just so happens I was working on this card on Wednesday for the Coloring Challenge 
& for the PTI Challenge- for day one of their celebrations,
 & lo & behold,
the SSS Challenge came up & my card fit PERFECTLY!
I am not one to post & link to many challenges at one time.
Maybe "old age," but I get a little overwhelmed with trying to keep track of them all! LOL
When they fit, they fit!
Just using those companies I like to go to for all my stamping goodies! ;)
On to my card!

Grateful for You!   
I adore this image from PTI-Especially, 
along with their Mix & Mat Dies- a staple for any stamper!
(This Mix & Mat Die? Flourishes Die)

I stamped my image with Memento Ink on Bristol Board, & colored it with a mix of
 Spectrum Noir Markers, using the no line coloring technique.
Die cut  my images with the Especially You Die Set & placed them where I wanted on my card over the Mix & Mat Dies.

I used some designer paper- Recollections-Wildflower Paper Stack.
(That little colorful piece sticking out the side)

 Here you can see some of the dimension--using Scotch Perm. Mounting Tape behind the large peony, & a peak of the inside using one of the Mix & Mat Dies-Flourishes from the same set 
for consistency & balance.
The inside done with the same set- Especially You.
 Lastly, my sentiment on the front from Especially You- from one of the sentiment die cuts in the set--cutting 5 of them, & stacking them & adding Wink of Stella-clear for some sparkle.
Lastly adding Nuvo Crystal Drops- Clear, for dew drops & 28 Lilac Lane Sequins for more sparkle!

WHO will I send this card too for the "send a friend a card day?"
I have a friend who has been recovering from cancer & think she would enjoy this card! ;)
