Get Well

I've done a bit of stamping and colouring and one of the images has been used on this bright Get Well card.  An odd piece of background paper has been used and I found some scraps of coloured card to match before cutting shapes using a set of dies which I've had from the very early days of die cutting - needless to say they've not been used in ages but I thought the wonky shapes suited this card (good job I have a good memory as to what is in my stash!!).  The wording was composed on the computer using three different fonts, printed and die cut into a banner to complete this fairly simple card.

Snippets Challenge #333

I'm taking this card along to the Snippets Playground this week and if you pop along for a visit you will see a great card which Di has made to inspire us and of course to showcase the prize which will go to the lucky winner in the draw.  I've used various snippets of card left over from some of my inky play sessions using Pixie Powders and probably some Distress inks as well (I should make notes really when I play, but always forget).  The larger square piece was embossed while some stamping was done onto the narrow strip and the circle.  The dragonflies were punched from some other scraps at some point and were living in a 'scraps pot' on my desk..  The main background was an odd piece of paper which I thought went well colourwise.  The floral images were built up using a selection of small stamps from a set called Stamp Soup - great fun to use for fantasy floral effects.
