GET WELL KAREN!

Today's card is another that I did using the supplies from my spring craft kit. It's reall amazing what you can get made out of four sheets of 12 x 12 card stock, four or five sheets of 12 x 12 double sided patterned paper, a few lengths of ribbon and various other assorted embellishments.

I needed a get well card for a friend from church who after over a year of set backs finally had surgery last week which will hopefully allow her to get out of a wheelchair and walk again.

Once again I seached through past SCS card sketch challenges and found the one this card is based on. It is Sketch number 64.

I pulled out another one of my favorite stamp sets that is retired,Nice and Easy Notes. It was stamped on whisper white card stock and colored in using Prisma pencils blended with orderless mineral spirits. I'm not a fan of noted ribbons with is what the model for the sketch shwed and so I used a flower on a ribbon belt.

This is really nice, Suzanne. I love that set and still use it too. I had it before it became available in Australia and now it is retired here as well.

That dp is so pretty!
