Best Wishes

Mojoday again...and another great sketch!

Today I'm making a card to send a friend who will be having her tonsils removed at a ripe old age of 40-something! Most Get Well cards tend to be reserved, with some bordering on "With Sympathy"... not something I'd like to receive from anyone. I make mine loud and cheerful. And so, against this week's Mojo backdrop, I came up with this cheery little number ...complete with flowers that will not wilt!
The red CS for the card base is by Bazill. The background paper is from Basic Grey's "Picadilly" pack. The yellow and green panels come from WRMK's "Travel Light" pack. I stitched all the panels. 
I cut the dotted circles with Nellie Snellens's Flower die (MFD020). I adhered the mulberry paper rosed with some glue gots. I wanted some "sunshine" on this card, hence the yellow panel and roses.  The greeting is from Papermania's "Sentiments" set.
I punched the lacy edge for the green panel with X-Cut's Leafy Lace Decorative Border Punch. And to finish, some aqua organdy ribbon and bow.
As always, I hoisted everything up on foam tape!
On the inside, a strip of roses from Basic Grey.  Coloured card bases are great, but the inside has to be lined with some white...a little extra work, but well worth it.

I've also shared this card on Make-It-Monday and CES Challenges. Great places for inspiration.

Thanks for dropping in. Hope you enjoyed the visit and I'll see you at my next post!
