You are made of wonderful - ‪#‎frommetowhenyourefeelingblu‬

Happy Friday! Welcome to a special Crazy Crafters Team projects International highlights. We have many talented stampers from around the world taking part for a special theme, "From me to you when you are feeling Blue". It is all thanks to Petra Tailor who started this wonderful cause to make and send a card to someone who is suffering from depression or going through a tough time and to help brighten their life in some way.

For this theme, I made this special encouragement card with a message of hope and love. 
This card hopefully imbues that through the sentiments. "You are made of wonderful" and "You Matter". We all go through down times but we need look from inside and to love ourselves. Embracing who we are and that's what make us special".

To make this even more special I have made a shaker card in the form of a butterfly window for shine and sparkle. 

I have used several sets to create this unique card:

Picture Perfect Photopolymer - for the roses and sentiment - "You are made of wonderful".
Banners For You Photopolymer Bundle:
• Banners for You - "Just so you know... You matter" sentiment.
• Bunch of Banners framelits dies - banner die cut.
• Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies - butterfly window
Birthday Banners  - double banner image.
Sunshine Wishes - 'Hope' die cut in gold.
Gorgeous Grunge - splatter effects.

Sweet Sugarplum ruched ribbon and Linen thread.

The colours have been inspired by Pals Paper Arts: PPA309 – A Color Challenge by Katy McGloin.

Here is the banner with the colour challenge:

Please check out the creative projects and hopefully you'll be inspired to take part using these great colours. :)

The card base is Sahara Sand, and ink colours are Island Indigo and Sweet Sugarplum as well as Sahara Sand.

Overview of the card

Inside the butterfly window shaker, I have stamped four roses to compliment the butterfly shape. 

The Sweet Sugarplum roses are a mixture of first and second generation stamping to get the lighter shades and Island Indigo has been stamped on last for definition. 

The same technique has been applied to the Island Indigo roses.

Inside of card

The same elements are carried on the inside of the card, with a poignant statement that "You Matter" with hope to always look at the bright side. We are all special and the images on the card symbolises adaptability - Staying true to your own unique frequency, without losing who you are - which is so true in life.
