Get Well Soon

Hello everyone,

Today's card was crafted for this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge which was to create a scene. These are perhaps the most difficult cards for me to craft. I just don't have the skill to make them turn out the way I picture them in my head. That being said, I had to give it a try. It took only three attempts which for a clean and simple one layer card, is pretty good.

The card base is Recollections. The image is Verve Forever In Our Hearts. The sentiment is Hero Arts Thoughtful Messages highlighted with 3mm pearls.

When all is said and done I really love this card. It is simple and sweet and makes for a wonderful get well card. I first tried it with my watercolour crayons but I find they don't work as well on acrylic stamps. It worked much better with my ink spots.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.

  1. I'm impressed... I'm a bit intimidated by this week's challenge.

  2. this is a sweet get well card! Are the birds connected to that awesome image or did you stamp them on seperately??? Great addition of the pearls!
