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
