Sweet Blush
Kraft
Smokey Shadow
Raspberry Fizz 

Hello!  Today I made a cute little 'get well' card.  I never seem to have any when I need them, so I thought I should stock up.  My card base is a little smaller than a standard A2 card.  I trimmed the edges so the top note die took up almost the entire card front.  I stamped the bottom portion with a Text Style stamp in Pink Passion (which is a great match up for Raspberry Fizz).  I tore an edge of Smokey Shadow to put behind the ribbon.  It's the very first time I've ever used that color, and I love it.  I sponges around the perimeter of the top note panel with Basic Black, since I don't have any gray ink.

It's hard to tell in the photo, but the button is a perfect match.  It's looks like pewter in real life.  I threaded the button with a sliver of Sweet Blush card stock.  Such a handy trick when you don't have the right thread color.
Speaking of the photo, I took 100+ pictures of this card.  I'm trying out a photo box I made and trying to get just the right lighting.  It's tricky.  The pictures still didn't come out the way I wanted.  I'm still playing.  Any advice would be great.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a great day!!!

{Get well soon}
