I have a 'Get Well' card to share with you today. One of my cousins is laid up resting a very sore ankle, long story, won't go into the gorey details, but she needs surgery and has to wait out a course of antibiotics first, so she's laid up, resting, reluctantly. This card is to encourage her to make the most of the 'enforced rest' and enjoy some 'down time'. You never do when you have to though do you? LOL! I slipped some scrummy Lindt choccie in the envelope too, for a sweet treat. My fav!!
So here's my lil' creation, starting with a close up of Krista's fabulous image - Morning. She's missing from Krista's catalogue at the moment, but I notice she occasionally brings back 'old stamps', so always worth looking through. I just love the way she's drawn! All bed hair and slouchy socks!
Time to turn on the colour...
I went for gorgeous Summery coloured papers. First Edition, some of my favourite papers as they're really thick good quality papers, with lovely embossed, glittered finishes. I used turquoise card stock to mat the image and sentiment and for die cut details, to give a really Summery cheery feel to the card.
Now a coloured close-up
And now the blooms

As You Like It Challenge: #4 ~ Favourite Papers & Why = First Edition Papers. I love the mix of embossed finish, glittered and double sided papers in these pads. They are a lovely heavy weight and such fabulous quality. Until I found Maja Design papers, they were my all time favourite, now they'll have to share the spotlight with Maja Design, but I still love First Edition and use them lots.
