Throwback Thursday "Viewers Choice" Challenge



There was a dual purpose for this card.  An elderly couple that live close to us are both ailling.  He has cancer and not doing well and she fell right before Christmas and broke her hip.  I just found this out yesterday.  So i set in making this card for them and it also has the requirements for the throwback challenge.

I used the BOTANICAL CRICUT LITE cartridge
Lilac cardstock is Provo Craft  pastels
White is from Walmart
Gelly roll pen from PKS
Gel lilac color from Sams
Purple ribbon from Walmart
Card size  4 1/4 x 5
matte size  outside  3 1/2 x 4 1/2"  inside matte  4 3/4" x 4"
Both layers of the heart cut at 3"
Printed paper is from The Paper Studio
I believe the sentiment is from some stamps i purchased at HSN
