This is a card I made for hubby Paul. It was for the first anniversary of his bone marrow transplant. When they receive their transplants, the hospital tells the patients that date becomes their 'official birthday' as it symbolises a second chance of life. It's a date you don't forget and we're so thankful that he's been given this opportunity by an unknown donor. I could have done this with autumn colours as I also had papers in that colourway, but I chose green to symbolise Spring as I always think of that time of year when life begins again in the garden.
The papers and topper were a Nancy Watt freebie in a recent magazine.
Ribbon from QVC.
Card Candy coloured with Promarkers.
Sentiment printed on computer, cut with Nesties and chalked.
