Get Well Twist


 I water colored this white background piece with pastel blue and green inks and once it dried, I embossed it with a WRMK next level gemstone ef. Next I added a SU! doily underneath the SU! sentiment which was layered with a SB grommet tag using some Cool Caribbean card stock. I fussy cut the sentiment and placed it on the blue panel, then looped some pastel green gingham ribbon on the sides. I added some pale green Kaiser pearls to the top and bottom and called this one done. The inside sentiment says "and sometimes it's a pain in other places too." 

I'm sharing this with the TT349 challenge which is "creative borders." I'm thinking the layered tag with ribbon would be a creative border of sorts. I guess the challenge police will decide that for me :)

Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great day!

Haha, Challenge Police, indeed! If they come for you, Carol, they'll have to step over me, cuz I'll tell them that this card is a pure delight in person! I still chuckle at that sediment - and can attest to the truth of it, too!! Happy 4th! Hugs, Darnell
