Get Well Soon

Today I made a Get Well card for a friend of mine, who is recovering from back surgery.  She is doing well and is able to sit at her computer again, after having had a very short recovery period.  I am so glad to hear some good news, because this past year brought a lot of sad news for friends and co-workers and it is continuing into the new year.

We are having springlike weather and I think that has influenced me to choose these soft colored papers from Pink Petticoat. As usual my pictures do not show the true colors, which are actually a bit brighter.

For the first time ever I have used doilies, which I originally had bought for placing homemade cookies, chocolates and such on top. I also used the Fleur de Lis Pendants and the Peony dies from Spellbinders for the first time, which I have had forever. The couch stamp and the sentiment are from a PTI set. The flowers are a MS punch, retro flower punch and another little punch from my stash. The flowers I believe are Prima and I used a MS punch for the leaves.

On the inside I again used the same DP and punches. I don't think I have ever used so many dies on one card. It sure took a long time getting them all cut out. 

I hope you like my little creation and I thank you all for dropping by.
