Freshly Made Perfect Sentiments

I followed this Freshly Made Sketch Challenge #34 to make this get well card.

I made this card following the above sketch, and also combined it with the Perfect Sentiments PSC31 which is to make a get well card without using the words "get well." I went with a white and gold card, embossing the die cut stem, sentiment, and tiny leaves with gold ep. The SB circle and scalloped circle were outlined with a gold paint pen, as well as the edges of the scored panel. I used the square lattice and leafy branch efs and popped up the stem on foam tape after curling the leaves around a small paint brush handle.

The sun is actually making an appearance in PA today - YAY!! It's been a while since we've seen a sunny day and I'm going to enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a sunny day :)

This card is stunning, Carol! Wow! I am so glad to see the sun, that I am dragging my feet to get to work. I swear the garden doubled yesterday with the humidity!

Gorgeous card, Carol. The gold and white is such a class act together. Your rounded leaves came out perfect and I love the three little leaves in the corner. You hit the nail on the head with this challenge card.

Ooh, what a beauty, Carol. The gold, embossed leaf is so pretty. I like the scored panel, too. Just an overall super card.

I hate when we have several days of clouds...so depressing. But, maybe that is to make us appreciate the sun even more. :-)
