Thinking of You Card

I needed to make a get well card and this is what I came up with.  I'm not sure I like it for a get well card and I may rethink the card and try something else.  I have been thinking about this one card for a while now and I may just give it a try tomorrow.  I can always use this one for something else.  

It was a fun card to make and as you know, this is one of my most favorite layouts!  The image is from Stampin' Up!.  It's one of the incentive stamps from a while back.  I told you before, I was cleaning out some of my stuff and I ran across this! I will be putting it in my web store as soon as I'm done typing up this post!

Now onto this fun card.  The base of the card is Bashful Blue, the redish layer is is Melon Mambo (the lighting wasn't the best to bring out the true color, plus I had the setting on my camera in the wrong place to be taking indoor photos.  We had taken a couple of days to head up to Duluth and to Gooseberry Falls to get some photos of the frozen falls.  That was about all that was frozen.  Lake Superior was totally clear.  Not what we expected.  But there was more snow in the Two Harbors area than there was in Duluth!   Anyway, back to the card (see how easily I get distracted?? LOL).  The striped layer is from the "Everyday Enchantment" designer paper pack.  In the pack the stripes are not angled.  I cut the paper that way.  It wastes a lot of paper doing that but I just couldn't help myself.  Straight stripes wasn't doing it for me!!

I added some Melon Mambo striped ribbon and turned it so the backside was showing and I set a button in place in the middle of it with a glue dot.  And that was it.  Easy Peasy!!
And now I'm off to rest my foot.  A couple of months ago I broke my toe and every now and then it hurts.  Tonight happens to be one of those nights when it's hurting.  SO I'm going to go pamper it a bit and work on a blanket I'm making for my niece.  And of course I'll show it to you when I'm done!!! Need you ask?  LOL

Thank you ever so much for stopping by today,
