Every Breath

Every breath is a gift.  And purple skies remains a mystery.  I just spent 10 minutes trying to fine tune the color of the sky.  Not working in my photo fixer in Picasa.  These really are purple skies that match the light purple in the background paper, lol.  Oh well, you know, her hair looks better in this one. lol.  I made this today for a friend who is just starting chemotherapy for Breast Cancer.  I think she is going to like it.  I have been thinking about airbrushing different skies and thinking of some color combinations, and then I saw Barbara's card and knew I had to use the rhinestones in the sky as well.  Please do click on Barbara's link and check out the card I am talking about, it is so adorable!  I love going through her blog and seeing one amazing card after another. 

I just love this image and a couple more similar ones I ordered from Unity Stamps during their sale.  Phyllis Harris is the artist and I love these little hair blowing in the wind girls.  I plan on using them quite a bit, so I hope you love them as much as I do.
