Mo's Challenge #176

Ribbons and Pearls

This was an easy challenge for me....I use ribbons and pearls on most of my cards! 

Don't you just love this image?! I think it's just perfect for a Get Well card. 
For the past few weeks I've felt very much like this poor bear! I spent the week of February school vacation in bed coughing and sneezing, hacking and wheezing! I'm just now starting to feel human again!
This card gave me fits while I was making it! The robe is paper-pieced, and when gluing it, I got glue on the card stock which made it necessary to cut out the image. I then had the bright idea to cut out the sentiment, too! It was a real pain, but I really think that the botch-up turned into a really cute card. The flowers were made with leftovers from other projects.
Images: Beary Sick f from Mo's Digital Pencil (The sentiment is included!)

Tools: Copics, Xacto knife, MS Lace border punch, Assorted flower and leaf punches, 
Mounting tape, Glue dots

Papers: SU! Celery and Turquoise, Neenah white, SU! DP

Embellishments: Ribbon, Tiny pearl cabochons
I hope you'll join us this week in Mo's Challenge! You just might win a $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil!

Thanks for visiting!

    Yeas, I think so too, this would make a perfect get well card; the image, the colors you always know to blend them so beautifully!
