Better Get Better, My Friend

Well I just read a post in Facebook that a customer turned friend of mine, is going in the hospital for surgery tomorrow!  So naturally I ran down to My Stampin’ Space to make her a card.

The sketch was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch challenge and the delicious color combination came from The Paper Players Color Challenge # PP204.

IMG_3596I sure hope that this will brighten the day of my friend while she is recuperating!  I think this lovely color combo will make anyone happy.

This is my time playing with the Paper Players!  I’m excited to participate in their challenge.

I used Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, and Mossy Meadow (all new colors from Stampin’ Up!’s 2014-16 In-Color collection) and Wisteria Wonder for my color palette.  I used the hostess set “Bloom With Hope” for the flowers which were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored using the blender pens and classic ink.  The sentiment comes from A Dozen Thoughts.  The icing on the cake comes from the Wisteria Wonder Seam Binding Ribbon.  It makes such drapey bows, so feminine!  I love seam binding ribbon and I’m so glad that so many new colors have been added!.

Thanks for stopping by My Stampin’ Space today!  Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know how you like this card.  If you are inspired to make this card, and need to order any supplies; click here to go to my store, or click on any item below.
