Flower Soft is Messy! and a Sad Ending.....

I decided to do the Ways To Use It Challenge at SCS today. I needed some happy RED to shake off some not so good news.
My DIL, Debbie, got a gift certificate from her Middle School students for a mani-pedi, and she was very excited to get one for the first time. As she was leaving, she fell, and broke her ankle, tore the ligaments, and suffered a dislocation. She went to the hospital, where they gave her DRUGS, and she had surgery this morning.
We didn't know until this afternoon whether or not we would have Jake, our DGS, stay with us, or how she was doing, so we have been here all day waiting to hear.......she is now home, and DS says she is okay. I will feel better after speaking with her. Men are not good at telling who, what, and all that stuff.
In the meantime, keeping busy with the challenge was a bit of a sweet friend Anne (Itsapassion) sent me some Flower Soft. I didn't remember what she told me about how to use it. as a result, even though I used it sparingly, it's all over my table, shirt, pants, hands, you know!
I hope you like the card, and I will keep you posted on Debbie's condition!!

Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #10

This is my very first DDIC and I want to thank Lori Rider and the DT for inviting me to join them.
On the left is the bedroom taken from that was to be our inspiration. The colors of chocolate and gold just seemed so elegant, that I took the gold of the pillow and the print design as the basis for my card. I also included the flickering candles in the gold and orange button embellishment.
I used the Autumn Days and Autumn Leaf Prints stamp sets from SU, and brushed gold and chocolate chip paper. I stamped in Stazon Timber Brown. The gold leaves in the bg are embossed in Egyptian Gold EP, and are dazzling IRL.
I hope you like what I have done with this challenge. Please visit the other members of the Divine Divas to see their cards by going to the left and clicking on each name under the badge. If you would like to join us in this inspiration please link it here:
