Get Well Wishes

A 'Get Well' card today.
I started by covering a card blank with pink paper, so I could create a thin pink border.   I used an embossing folder which came as a freebie with a magazine some time ago.  I actually bought it when it first arrived on the shelves, not knowing that it would turn out to be so popular that many crafters were trying to get hold of one long after the magazines had been sold!  It's a square embossing folder, but I just used the bottom half as I wanted to used floral patterned paper for the top half.  Along the curved pattern of the embossing, I added flowers, picking out the colours in the patterned paper, punched with a Fiskars daisy punch.  I attached every other one with foam pads to add some dimension.  A computer generated sentiment finished off my card.

  I am joining in the following challenges:

What lovely bright colours you have used Liz and I love the embossing and the pretty punched flowers which do go beautifully with the patterned paper and I think this would speed up anyone's recovery. x

I have this embossing folder Liz, like you I bought it when it first came out, and I don't use it enough!
You card is really pretty, a great idea to use just the lower half of the folder.

Hi Liz,
what a very brilliant card and I love your wonderful design.
Never though of just using the bottom half of that folder.
Thank you for the inspiration.
I won mine on the snippets playground.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
