A Magical Monday - Bringing Comfort ....

Good Morning to you All!
I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend - I did, but it didn't include any stamping time unfortunately. However, huge amounts of family fun was had so I feel really blessed for that!
Well, here we are at another Magical Monday with There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes. Patti J. Gilliam brings us this weeks challenge. She wants you to use this image "Flight of the Fucshia" and Make a "Comforting" card (thinking of you, get well, sympathy, etc.), using Flourishes and/or Pearls.
Isn't this image so beautiful! I coloured the dove with Distress Inks on watercolour paper. I love this teal paper so decided to pull colours together from that. DP was from my stash. I used a scalloped nestie square behind the image and used Bosskut swirls to add behind my Prima flower. The sentiment is from Gina K.Designs 'Comfort & Peace' set and then I finished by added 2 teal adhesive pearls from stash.
A very simply designed card but when it comes to comforting cards, I always find simple is best. Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you're able to pop on over to There's Magic in the Air and check out the other fabulous creations by the DT gals. And don't forget, whilst you're there you can pick up this beautiful 'Flight of the Fuschia' image for free and take part in this weeks challenge! Hope to see you there.
I hope you all enjoy a wonderful day and thank you, as always, for your visit and beautiful comments!
Hugs,
Danielle x
