New Card for a Friend

I waqs asked by a good friend to make her a card to give to her brother. he is having a bout of serious depression following the death of his mother, and is being cared for in a nursing home out of state.
I didn't want to make a get well card, so I took my friend's feelings and worry to mind and made a card of love, a card to tell her brother how much she loves him.
I used chipboard shapes on both the front cover and inside, inking and embossing them before adhering them to the card. I have never done this before, believe it or not!! I also adhered jewels to the insides of some star buttons, attaching them to some small embossed chipboard.
Finally, I printed out a quote that originally used the word "Sisters" but changed it out for "Brothers". I gave her the card today and she hugged me to let me know how much it meant to her. I'm including my prayers for him to get well.
This card qualifies for the CupCake Craft Challenges blog challenge #94 "dazzle Us".
