From OWL of Us Clear Card

For a few weeks now, I have been making a ton of cards... Dozens of the same thing as a matter of fact!!! Yes, I am very very grateful that I am actually selling through my etsy shop but six dozen of cards later, I started feeling like a machine... My brain kind of quit working for a while there. So soon as I got all orders shipped out and my shop cleaned out, I immediately started free hand making stuff again!!! Oh it felt so great not having to keep glancing at the model card to make sure the whole set looked close enough to the same.

I have been wanting to try using clear cards for a while now and using transparencies on my scrapbook pages but I kept wimping out. A couple of days ago, as I was digging through some boxes to look for photos to use for the blog hop The Cuttlebug Spot is going to be a part of, I found a stamp set I so so love and totally forgot about. It's a stamp set from Basic Grey's Pyrus Collection.

Here's the card:


I used Sure Cuts A Lot to cut the scalloped oval, my Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder for texture on the card base.


All patterned paper I used on the card are from the Sugar Plum Collection, I think it is from Doodlebug Design (I could be wrong). 

This card by the way is going to a very special person who I haven't seen in a while and I miss so much. Brandi. She has been so sick... And we may lose her... My heart breaks at the thought of her life revolving around the ER, I feel like I am losing a sister or my best friend. :'( I wish I could wish for 20 more years to her life this Christmas, but all I could do is pray for God's will to be done for her, and for all of us.  I miss her so dearly... But she is in no form to have visitors over at the moment. If all of you could only be around her for five minutes, you will love this girl as much as we all do.
