Feel Better..

Hello! When I saw the Play date Cafe challenge colors for this week, I fell in love. My first thought was a baby card (which I may still create), but it wound up being  card for a friend recovering from back surgery. Here are this week's colors:



And here is the card I created:



I just love these colors together and this patterned paper is one that got shuffled in behind all of my Basic Grey, MME, and Cosmo Cricket!! Poor lonely paper..but aren't the colors just perfect for this challenge? I also love scallops, so those just had to be a part of the design. The ribbon is actually PTI saddle stitch ribbon, but I removed the white stitching because the card has no true white on it, so that part stuck out too much.

Well, that's it. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Friday!

Great way to tone down what can be a busy pattern! (I have this pack and have struggled with ideas for how to use the sheets with this pattern...) Hope your friend gets back on her feet quickly!

I love this card!! Healing Touch is one of the best sentiment sets PTI ever released (IMHO) :)

I liked how you removed the white in the saddle stitching. Never noticed it was missing until you mentioned it. Now I might buy more of this type of ribbon after seeing what you've done with it.
