Birthday Blossom

Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly

I have had a very tedious and painful 8 weeks. I went forward at church on Sunday for prayer.  The pain stopped for the day. My back worsened during the night so something about my night time posture is not only hindering the healing but is seems to be aggravating things. That gave me hope.
I am so far behind in my favorite challenges but I made this card late this afternoon and  I am half pleased with it. It's bland but the lines match up and I like the sentiment as the centre of the flower. This is the first stamp set I ever purchased and it stamps so beautifully.
When I am tired my right arm twists a bit so the smallest matte has the stamped piece a bit off centre. It wouldn't come up so I left it.

As a fellow back pain sufferer I hope yours eases soon. It is horrific what a bad back can do.

I love this card, that stamp is so cute and the colours you've used are perfect!

It' a beautiful card, don' t notice the panel which is not quite straight. Another back pain sufferer I hope you are better soon, mine comes and goes as it has done over the last 20 years, but crafting takes my mind off it! Thanks for using the triple time stamping technique challenge from TTT, we're glad you did!

So sorry you are having problems with your back. I suffer from back problems too and it is no fun! I will be praying for you! Your card is beautiful. I love all of the colors you used and the overlapping looks so cool. I really like the focal flower that you have layered with your sentiment too. Very clever! Thanks for joining us at TTT. Feel better soon!
