Get well soon

Another card from me today. This time a get well card.

I have followed the sketch over at Karens Doodles Netherlands challenge blog. The digi image is one of Karens Doodles, I have taken advantage of her special offer and bought 9 images and got another 3 free, can't be bad. The image is called A Friend in need and is available HERE.

I have coloured it in with Promarkers. The pink and purple check backing paper I have used is from Forever Friends For you 6 x 6 paper pad. The lilac and purple card is from my craft stash. I have paper pierced the right hand side of the lilac paper with a paper piercing stencil I have had for ages but only ever used once! I have added an ornate corner in the top left hand side of the card as I felt it needed something there. It was cut using a cuttlebug die. The waste pieces from the corner have been used on the corners of the image, it seemed a shame to chuck them out. The sentiment has been rubber stamped using my new Just Rite stampers, I used Brilliance pearlescent purple ink so the wording and the border have a lovely shimmer to them which hasn't picked up too well in the photo. I have used a silver peel off all around the edges between the ivory card and the pink paper.

I am entering this card into a few challenges
