Thinking of you get well card

Hello everyone... hope you are all good today... its cold in Cape Town, but the sun is peeking its head out so it looks like we are going to have some blue skies today.

My cousins hubby gran was recently in hospital....and of course no shop bought cards for the family...lol....

It had to be a quick one so I started with a C5 sized White card, and embossed an off cut of curious metal ice White with my trusty vagabond.

Added the broad White satin ribbon with my bow and layered that onto the White base.

Stamped one of my favourite Penny Black flower stamps 266K "blush" with kaleidacolor think it was autumn leaves, onto another scrap of white for instant Color and overstamped my favourite Hero Arts word stamp H2141 Manuscript background in antique linen distress ink pad ...another favourite and often used ink pad.

Stamped thinking of you from the Hero Arts set LL019 Ribbons with messages (an old and I think discontinued set) in the green part of the Kaleidacolor ink pad and cut along the stamped image and attached to card as shown.

To finish added 3 little pearl hearts to the bottom left and of course my trusty diamond stickles on the petals of the flower.

Thanks for stopping by... have a great day
