Get Well Soon

Hi there!  Hope your week is off to a good start!  I'm popping quickly to share the card I made for this week's challenge on Joan's Gardens' blog.  The requirements this week were to make a get well card, use a green and white color scheme, include a basket and use some patterned paper.  I happened to need a get well card, so this worked out perfectly for me.  My card is also for Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Week 43 (white plus one other color).

Here is my card:

I started with a card base of SU Certainly Celery and layered with patterned paper from the GCD Studios Melody Ross Soul Food 8x8 pack.  I created the basket using Heartfelt Creations Decorative Layered Basket dies.   I added a few Wild Orchid Crafts white wild roses and some leaves punched with a Martha Stewart Rose Leaf punch.  The sentiment is from the SU set, Sincere Salutations.  It is framed by a Spellbinders Fancy Tags diecut.   That was it - I kept it very simple!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!  I'll be back sometime soon with some other projects I've been working on.

  9. What a beautiful basket and the roses are just as pretty. I do want to play in this challenge but I don't think I'll make it. Too much on my plate at the moment.
