Get Well, Naturally

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm really into natural healing as much as possible since I'm allergic to most antibiotics, food with pesticides, etc. But this card is inspired by City Crafter Challenge #97 to use natural colors and this sketch from Perfect Sentiments Challenge #20 to make a get well card.




In thinking about natural colors, I also thought about natural fibers and wanted to use canvas, twill, and jute. The smaller canvas scalloped circle was mounted on a Kraft cardstock circle and popdotted for dimension. I have some Kraft colored lace that I rarely get to use but really love when I see it in my ribbon box. It didn't photograph well, unfortunately. I thought the bottom part needed something more so I added a flower embellishment with a wooden button. Thank you ladies for the inspiration. Now I just need to figure out which of my sick friends gets it.

6.5" x 5" card:
Paper - Basic Grey "Scarlet's Letter, " CTMH Kraft cardstock
Stamp - CTMH "Best Wishes"
Ink - Ranger "Vintage Photo;" CTMH Autumn Terracotta (sponged on smaller scallop edges)
Other - Close To My Heart - Just Blooms flower, Wooden Buttons, Natural Jute; Technique Tuesday "Textile Scallops;" wide twill and lace unknown
