Girly Get Well

Using the sketch over at Crafts & Me this month I created a 'get well' card for my MIL. The only variations were the shaped card base and the central shape (with the addition of an extra border horizontally at the middle) . The elements of it - the 'cross' of papers, fancy corners and the square & floral arrangement etc are all there - but look a little different with a shaped ground.

The image of the little girl 'nurse'  is by the talented Mo Manning and was coloured using Promarkers as were the pink flowers & blue branches. Hopefully this has added subtle variation to the 'petals' as well as ensuring everything matches of course.

Just a few couple more layers on the inside the card and I incorporated a circular sentiment by 'redcardcorner' into a shortened border and to its centre I added a pink printed version of the butterfly so it matches the one on the front of the card.

Thanks for coming by,

Tine :)
