SLS Lines Challenge

This awesome image comes from SLS Lines.  I made this card for the new SLS Lines Challenge. The contest is Anything Goes. I just love the sassy look on this lady's face. I added the sentiment "Your life is a story, make it interesting."  This image is called Marie Antoinette queen.

Drop by the SLS Challenge blog and share your creations for your chance to win some awesome images. (Click on the Challenge button to see the challenge for the month)

So today is the actual anniversary of my 5th year, the day in which I didn't have seizures.  My 2nd brain surgery took place on Feb 11th of 2010.  It ended well in the evening.  I of course was out for pretty much the whole day. I do recall coming out of the anesthesia in the evening, basically screaming at the top of my lungs.  They did give me some more pain medication, but when they are working on your brain, they very much don't give you a lot of medication as they are afraid of you falling into a coma, passing out,....so, it's pretty much up to you to suck it up.  They need you to stay coherent. So for me, very much a lot of praying.

Fun thing today, drop by the Challenge blog and tell me which of the DT cards that you like best...

The image of the Queen conceived to expect more. This is precisely the charm. Nobody knows exactly what she thinks . I love it.

What a fun card. I am not sure if the regal lady has had an interesting life, or if she is waiting to listen to the story the card recipient has. Cool card. I tried to find the designers page on the blog but I couldn't find it. Do like that grumpy bunny though. Made me laugh.

Laila B. said...

Lovely card...love the sentiment!!! ;)

Andree said...

A wonderful card Holley and a great colour combo. Marie Antoinette looks suitably regal and I love the brads on the flowers.
I had a good look round SLS, the new challenge isn't up yet so out of the Portrait challenge DT cards I have to say that Valou's 'pretty pirate' card is brilliant. I'd never think to put a pirate with pastels and flowers but it works.
There are so many fabulous images in the SLS Etsy store, Sal is a very talented lady.
Congratulations on your 5 year anniversary. I know every day is special for you but today must be especially poignant. Well done on all you've achieved x
