Sunshine Wishes

Welcome

I made this card for a young person who was recovering from surgery, and I wanted to cheer up their day.


I started this with a piece of white card painted with Sparkling H2O's
 

I then stamped the snail image (from Whippersnapper Designs - which was a RAK from the lovely Michelle  of Inspiration Blooms) with Tuxedo black ink and then water-coloured it. 


The corner treatment started with a grosgrain ribbon across the corner, then a narrow sateen ribbon, the flower and a matching sateen ribbon bow.


The sentiment (and the sun and cloud image) are from a retired Craft's Meow set called Sending You Sunshine.

The card was finished with a few pale blue rhinestones after mounting it on a red base.
