Mend Soon

Sometimes you like them, and sometimes you don't!  This is a card I don't really care much for.  I think it is the colors.  It needs a punch of color or something.  But, considering the fact that I made it at 6:00 a.m. yesterday before heading to work, it will do!  The card is for a sweet lady at my church who fell and broke her ankle.  I have adopted her wonderful husband as my North Carolina father.  He gives me the best hugs every week, and since I can't get them from my own Daddy, who lives in Virginia, they are wonderful! 

The card was made from the latest sketch over at cardabilities.  In less than a week, my first card as a designer for that site will be revealed!  I'm excited!  In the meantime, I wanted to play along with the current sketch they have.  The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.  The large scallop circle was cut using the Storybook Cricut cartridge.  The small scalloped circles are punches.  I thought the sentiment "mend soon" would work well, since she has a broken bone.  It's kind of a play on the "get well soon" sentiment we all know and love.  The flowers are K&Co.  I also used a EKSuccess border punch on this one.  Quick, simple, and easy!

Here's the sketch and the card.


Thanks for looking and thanks in advance for those comments you leave.  They are very appreciated.

While the colors are subdued compared to what you normally use, I think this is a stunning card!
