Friendship card Using Conie Fong Dandelion Wishes

Hello Friends!  I hope this finds many of you, relaxing and enjoying extra time at home during this World crisis.  I realized today that how we look at our situation will affect how we react to it.  I am choosing to look at staying at home as a blessing.  I think many of us need to slow down, enjoy our lives more, learn to connect in other ways, instead of in person social interaction.  We can  connect with our friends and families through the Internet, Messenger, phone, texting, etc. and just take the time to enjoy our lives.  

Yes, our life looks a lot different this week than it might have last month; but if we are alive, we are ahead of some of the others who have gotten sick, hospitalized and/or died from the Coronavirus.  It is a sad time for the World; but we need to do whatever we can to help prevent the spread of this virus.  It isn't about us.  It's all of us in this together.  Let's do the best we can in this difficult time.

I created this card for a friend who requested me to create with this sweet Conie Fong "Dandelion Wishes" digital image.  I wanted to create a card using a PNG image; so that the image would blend with the background.  It worked out very well; but I had trouble trying to figure out what to use as embellishments.  I didn't want it to interfere with the pretty background and colors.
