I hope you are having a fantastic day! What an honor to be celebrating with Altenew for this event. Altenew's goal is to send cards to the elderly that live in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten. Check out the Celebrating Parents Card Drive and join this great cause by sending in your cards.

What would we do without parents. They come in all shapes and sizes. And I am very blessed to have such wonderful parents. I don't know what I would do without my parents. They have been such a good example for me. I wanted to make a thank you card for this, since parents deserve a thousand thanks, and many more!

You should have arrived here from SathyaKala's blog and you can go back to the beginning of the hop here

I began this card by stamping the large stamp from Geometric Botany and heat embossing it with Platinum embossing powder on watercolor cardstock. I used the wet on wet tecnique and dropped different blues and greens from the 24 Pan Watercolor set onto the panel and let it dry.

Then I took the "thanks" from the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Seasonal Blooms and cut it out of Gilded Glitter Cardstock, then cut two more from some white cardstock. I adhered those together and added a velum outline "thanks" behind it. I stamped the flower looking stamp from the set in Turquoise onto a turquoise card base and then adhered a white panel to the card and adhered the watercolored panel to the top.

To complete the card, I added some Gold sequins.

Thanks for visiting.
Make Today Amazing!
