Better Get Better

Yes, it's the often forgotten and usually most needed card we have in our collections, isn't it? The "get well" card is one that I have decided I need to spend some time working on. That along with a whole mess of other "to dos" that I have made promises to myself to keep working on makes for one busy girl! But thankfully I was able to steal away a few moments for a stamping project. Here's just one of the cards I made:


Isn't that a cute and unusual paper? It's not SU!, but honestly I don't know where it's from either. I got a piece of it from a fellow blogger last summer, and I have not had the opportunity to use it until today. I love it, though! And, I decided to play with some different color combos while I was at it.

River Rock, Soft Sky, and Chocolate Chip complement this mystery paper. More Mustard eyelets (remember those?!?), and sentiment stamped on twill tape as accents as well as central theme. A handful of paper piercing (there is piercing all around the Chocolate chip layer, you just can't see it, of course), and of course the Cuttlebug using the Mesh A2 embossing folder finish off this piece.

I hope you like it!

Great card! I love the simple look-it goes together well with the colors and DP. I was looking through my stash of cards yesterday and realized I only have one more sympathy card left--gotta get to work!
