Dedicated to Demetria

Glossy and Old Olive CS, "Autumn Leaves" Kaleidescope ink pad; Black Momento Ink, SU! Pocket Silhouettes

Hello All,

This card is for the IC over on Splitcoast.  The website this week is Kirkland's; I love the artwork there, I've been to the actual store many times!

 I was inspired by this painting:  "Spiced Canvas Sunset"

It was the perfect background for a card I wanted to make today.  My cousin, who I was very close to when I was growing up, has been admitted to a mental hospital suffering from bi-polar disease and is in a severe and dangerous depression.  Her doctors are closely monitoring her and changing her meds daily to try to help her.  She's an incredibly gifted writer, poet, and humanitarian and my heart is praying for her recovery.  I hope you will too!  Her name is Demetria, and here is a link to her biography and a peek inside some of her works.

Thank you so much friends!

I just LOVE your artsy card for the IC! It reminds of of Biggan's artistic that I drool over and can never accomplish myself!
