I also provided a battery operated tealight as a gift to everyone.
I showed this card as another example of what can be done with vellum and everyone loved it so much they wanted to make one - so since they were such good students and got done so quickly with the other projects we did this 'bonus' card.
(The vellum here looks purple - hard to get a good photo.)

Today I am showing you a card I made for a dear friend who has been hospitalized for several weeks. She is hoping to get home before Thanksgiving and I thought this card might perk her up. It sure perked me up making it. I had been in a sort of slump - mainly because I have been traveling so much lately. This card was just what I needed to get my hands on my 'toys' and get those creative juices flowing again.
The sentiment on the inside 'pops-up' when you open the card. I used a tutorial at Split Coast Stampers.
Card Stock: Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Stamp Set: Thoughts and Prayers
Ink:Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi Markers, Wild Wasabi ink pad
Ribbon: 1/8 inch taffeta Whisper White
