The Road Between Friends

Happy Monday!
We're starting a new challenge at Digi Makeover today and it's Anything Goes!  We are also having our April Guest Designer call so be sure to join in!!

I wanted to make a card for a friend that just went through a really rough surgery (and a couple after that to fix some complications that arose...) so I needed to make it simple so that it could go through the postal service without costing a crazy amount in postage.

While I feel that most of my cards tend to be more on the simple side, they still always manage to have lots of layers, making them super heavy.  So I tried to tone down those layers for my card.
I think I did pretty good.  This is probably the fastest card I've ever made from forming the idea to putting it together.  Everything just clicked.  I love it when that happens!

I used a simple sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps and layered it onto to some fun bright scrap papers!  I punched out one of the flowers from the paper to decorate the corner of the sentiment flag and embossed the background with my Swiss Dots folder which is my go to detail for a simple background.  It seems to work with everything and I love it

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
