Very Versailles

 Hello friends! I hope you are all doing well. Today is the final presentation of my favourite sets that are retiring. The set I am featuring today is Very Versailles. I love this set and will definitely miss it. It is perfect for making a collage type card which is what I will be sharing today.

I started with a card base of Sahara Sand. On top of that, I added a layer of Petal Pink and on top of that, a layer of Evening Evergreen cardstock. On the very top, I added my stamped piece of Basic White cardstock.

On my Basic White cardstock I started by stamping the scripty stamp in Sahara Sand ink on the top right corner and the bottom left corner. I then stamped the vine stamp twice in the top left corner using Soft Succulent ink. I stamped the row of shapes in Evening Evergreen ink in the top right and bottom left corners. I then stamped the frame shape in the bottom right corner using Petal Pink ink. I wanted to tie in the Petal Pink ink a little more so I used my Petal Pink Dark Stampin' Blends and flicked the tip of the marker on the edge of the lid to add some splotches of ink all over the card. You have to zoom in to see it, but it is there.

I stamped my sentiment using Evening Evergreen ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock. I cut the ends of my strip at an angle to create a different look. Before I added it to my card, I added a swirl of Petal Pink ribbon under the sentiment piece. Then I added my sentiment using dimensionals.

I am going to share a happy story with you here. I have been suffering with an infection in my big toe for the past 5 months. I have been on many different antibiotics but so far nothing is working. A couple weeks ago my specialist put me on a different antibiotic hoping this would be the one to work. When I went to the drugstore to pick it up the pharmacist asked me if I knew how much it was going to cost. I said no, but the doctor really wanted me to take it. Apparently he had ordered 4 weeks and it was going to be very pricey. The pharmacist asked me if I wanted to try only one week at a time to see if it was going to work. I didn't know that was an option so of course I said yes. Well, the side effects of this antibiotic were horrendous - severe joint pain, insomnia, shortness of breath and it wasn't touching the infection. After the week my doctor said to discontinue taking it. I was so grateful to my pharmacist that she suggested only getting a week's worth of medication at a time. I would have paid the full price and had three weeks of meds that I couldn't take. I was so thankful for what she did, I dropped off a Thank you card for her. She was so touched that she called me at home to thank me for the card. That is why we do what we do! Everyone deserves a card for doing a good job!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I'm not sure who I will be sending it to but I hope they like it when they get it.

Stay well and keep creating!
