Hey there, here's another one for the Hope You Can Cling To card drive through Splitcoast Stampers to support breast cancer patients and their families.  Cathleen's challenge, Thank A Caregiver, was a fun one.  It can't be easy for caregivers/nurses to always be cheerful and supportive under these circumstances, so Cathleen wants to honor these men and women and let them know what an important roll they play in patient's lives by creating a thank you card.

There is very little stamping involved on this card.  In fact, it's just the sentiments inside and out...that's it!  The sentiments are from an Our Craft Lounge set called Thankful Flourishes.  It was stamped on white card stock, cut out with a Nestie then sponged before it was removed from the die.  I recently bought a bunch of Magnolia Doohickey dies and thought I would try them out.

The flowers (both sizes), greenery and dragonfly are all Magnolia dies and were cut out of white card stock then colored with Copic markers.  The flowers were all shaped on a thick computer mouse pad, a brad was inserted into the center then they were popped up on foam or adhered with Glue Dots.  Two dragonflies were cut, colored and Stickles were applied to the wings of one and the entire body of the other before they were glued together.  I guess that's about it for this one.

Copic coloring:

Large flower:  RV02, RV00, RV0000  Small flowers:  RV34, RV11, RV10  Greenery:  YG67, YG63, YG61  Dragonfly:  V99, V95, V93, V91
