Get Well Card with Black-Eyed Susans

We are having such wonderful weather this week! We've known for a week that we would have no rain, low humidity, and perfect temperatures, high around 70 degrees F.. My auto-immune disease decided to flare up and make me miserable instead of letting me work outside in the garden as I'd planned. I decided to take my mind off of misery by coloring some beautiful flower stamps from Power Poppy. Thinking about making Get Well cards for others took the focus off of myself. It's amazing how well that works! Coloring does, too! Here's the first one I colored with Copics and designed using a sketch from the Cheerful Sketches Challenge and sunflower and colors from the inspiration photos at Use Your Stuff

The background paper is old Basic Grey Nook and Pantry and the black pattern is from the Paper Studio Harper's Boutique. I used Spellbinders dies and the sentiment is cut using Cricut Paper Lace. I used a gauzy ribbon across the bottom that I've had forever and so glad to use up!.


Thank you for visiting! May God bless you in times of pain or illness and show you ways to get your mind off of your distress! Cardmakers and crafters have a special outlet for blessing others, too! (Check out my 2nd get well card, later.)

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

What a beautiful card you have created using the colours from my mood board challenge over at Use Your Stuff. I esp love the little hint of purple in your flower centres! Makes a lovely focal point to draw the eye in. Thank you so much for joining in the fun - Hugs DT Shirl
