Cardmap cards for friends

A few weeks ago we were given a challenge at our PennyFlowers group to do some cards using a Cardmap (sketch) and send them to some of our group that had been having a bit of a hard time lately or been sick. A lot of us had never had a go at cardmaps but have trouble coming up with layouts when planning a card.  The cardmaps that she gave us as the challenge, were from Becky Flecks pagemaps site who Angie had got permission to use them. I decided to have a go at a couple of them, and see what I came up with. 

The first one was this one, which I decided to do with my favourite die, the Marianne creatables doily die and the MS doily lace border punch. 

I sent it to KiwiBarb, who is living in Christchurch and has been having a trying time after the earthquakes.  Although she didn't have any damage to her own home, she has had some close friends and family that are going through a very difficult time, with their houses either badly damaged or unlivable!  I had been thinking of her quite a bit, and was happy to send her a card to cheer her up. This is the card I send her

The other card I made was this Cardmap.
I sent it to a lady in Malaysa, Kristyn who had been quiet, she sadly lost her dad last year, so I sent a card to let her know, us at PennyFlowers were thinking of her.

This one I did the flowers with a Cuttlebug flowers die and the MS butterflies punch.
