Feeling Under The Weather?

I found this beautiful paper over at Aww Shucks Scrapbook store.   It is from the Caroline Collection by My Minds Eye. It followed me home so I had no choice but  to find something to make with it.  I decided that Tilda would be the perfect compliment .  I wanted to show off the beauty of the paper, so I used it on each layer of the card.  The sketch is from Sketch Saturday.  I wanted to use a doily on the card and played with several positions.  I finally folded the doily in half and fan-folded it.  I thought it carried the parasol/umbrella one step further.  The sentiment is a clear stamp from my stash.  I curved it around and stamped on the circle with Old Olive SU ink.  I love the bend-ability of using clear stamps.

I love flowers, but don't tend to use bouquets of them on my cards.  I have seen so many cards with lots of flowers and I admire them, but I simply never get that flowery with my cards.  The floral paper and the weather sentiment reminded me of the old saying, "April Showers Brings May Flowers" so  it called for a floral bouquet.  I am glad I pulled out my stash of lovely flowers.  They give this Get Well card a cheerful, happy look to it.

Whether it is rain or shine where you live, I wish you all a week filled with fun and peace.  Oh yeah, a bit of uninterrupted crafting time would be nice too!  TTFN, Linda
