Get Well Soon

This card has been made for a friend of mine who lives in Toronto and is recovering from a heart attack which happened last week.  Needless to say I was shocked when I heard the news as she is only a few years older than me!  You just never know when/if something like this is going to happen do you?  I hope this card will cheer her up though :-)

The image used on this card is from the Aspects of Design #57 stamp sheet and has been coloured with Promarkers.  I've also used liquid pearls on the tiny dots underneath the leaves just to highlight them.

The backing papers came with one of my craft magazines and have been finished off with faux stitching around the outside.  The ric rac, ribbon, buttons and pearls were from my stash.

This card has been entered into the following challenges:
