Get Well Soon

Happy Wednesday! I don't know about you, but I am all messed up with the holiday Monday. It feels like Tuesday to me! But I'm glad it's not, because now we are that much closer to another weekend...yes!

Today I'm sharing a card I made for a friend of mine who recently had surgery. I decided to try a color combination that I haven't attempted before. I think it resulted in a cheery get well card, don't you?

For the front of the card I stamped polka dots on the lower half and stamped right over them with a leaf stamp from Papertrey Ink's Turning a New Leaf. I like this tone-on-tone look and may have to try it again! I colored the flowers with my Copics and added a little crosshatch design using my colorless blender. If you look really closely you can see it:

I don't often make get well cards but it's a great excuse to share a homemade card with a friend at a time when they need it the most. I'm hoping this card will send a little cheer and wishes for a speedy recovery. I hope you all have a great day!

I came across your post-it note pad cover at 2Peas. I think it was from several months ago! Anyhow, I just had to tell you that I loved it so much I had to give it a try. So awesome!!! Thank you!
