Get Well Soon


Today I am sharing a card I made for my Mother-in-law, who recently had surgery on her leg after she took a tumble.  She is recovering nicely, but it is always fun to receive happy mail in your mailbox - and this seemed like the perfect occasion!

I used a new to me set of dies from Julie Ebersole and Ellen Hutson - Wild Garden.  These flower dies are so much fun to mix and match together.  I pulled some scraps of colored cardstock out of my scrap bin, and just started cutting.  Then I played around with which colors/shapes I liked best and this is what I came up with.  The sentiment is from HA.  I hope it brings a smile to her face!  

Since I had cut so many pieces to play with, I went ahead and made a second card with some additional pieces.  

This time I used only one type of flower and leaf for a more cohesive look.  I thought the light purple rose complimented the pale blue note card nicely.  The white embossed sentiment is from PTI.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your day!
