Thank You Perfectly Penned

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 402 - Layered Scallops. I used 2 different fiskars scallopped border punches and 2 different colors of card stock.
My color combo is for today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 195 - Pinterest Inspiration photo.
My layout is from Friday's CLEAN & SIMPLE SKETCH CHALLENGE # 215. I started with a white cs base then added the 2 layers of scalloped borders.
I cut and embossed the 4 different leaves from 4 different colors of cs and arranged them the way I wanted them then stamped the sentiment in dusty durango and viola I was done.
OK so if you read my last upload, which was Wed by the way, you would remember what an ordeal I had with that creation. NOT this one. Went together like peanut butter and jelly. LOL.
HOWEVER, the dilema with my creation was NOT by a long shot the end of the trials for us that day. My MIL had 2 really hard BAD seizures around 3pm and FIL called the EMS to pick her up. She spent 2 days in ICU then Friday around 10am she started repeating everything she said 4-5 times and not able to walk, at 1pm we were in another hospital in another ICU where she has been since. Things have gotten better in some ways and we are HOPEFUL she can come home today.
I broke away to go to Sunday school only to find out that my daughter had her son in the ER for Asthma/Bronchitis. **man, can we get a break? ** At least they let him go back home after some steroids and resp treatments.
I am soooo ready for things to melow back out.
