Sending Get Well Wishes

Hello and Welcome! It was great to see so many worldwide sharing our St. Patrick's Day yesterday - hope you enjoyed it.

Just a short post from me. I've made this card for a dear lady who is ill at the moment.

Papers by Maja Design. Both dies by Sizzix - 'Bird Scroll' and 'Scallop Lace Envelope'. (I also die cut the Bird and Scroll in chipboard to layer it up and make it sturdy). Punches by Martha Stewart and Woodware. Lots of Stampendous frantage. Stamped a sentiment, inked most edges with DIs, dabbed with Waco pearl pen and lace from stash. Added rose, bow and heart pin to complete.

Thank-you for your visit and for any comments you may leave - they are greatly appreciated.
