Seems every week I hear about someone in the hospital, going through hard times with family, job problems, health issues.  Sometimes it seems like I make more of these kinds of cards than birthday cards.  What I love about card making is that creating them helps me DO something when it’s hard to know what to say or do.

I made 4 of these yesterday, using this simple, classic layout.  The mushrooms are cheery and make me smile so I hope it cheers up the recipient, too.

I used the Sale-a-Bration paper, Painted Seasons.   It has those cute mushrooms but also pretty flowers and another pattern that would work for fall/winter.   I used a 3″ x 4″ piece as my main image, layered on 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ Early Espresso.  I used Poppy Parade as the large layer, 4″ x 5-1/4″ and adhered to a Thick Whisper White standard size, 4-1/4″ x 11.

The Patterned 1″ strip is the other side of the mushroom print.

I did add a few little poppy butterflies from the Beauty Abounds dies.
It’s an easy layout you can adapt to any patterned paper.
