Better Get Better CTD#352 FMS #196

I have a friend who has been feeling poorly for several weeks. I had actually thought that she had recovered until I rang her last Sunday, and she told me she was still under the weather. It's not good to feel off-colour for so long, so a cheer-up card is required I think.

The lime green, soft gray, darker gray and aqua colour scheme at Color Throwdown is very pleasing to my eye, and I've pulled Summer Silhouette from the shelf. The sentiment, 'better get better' is from A Dozen Thoughts. Work of Art was on my table too, so a swish of colour was popped over the sentiment. A few sequins have been pulled from a roll of Bermuda Bay and scattered around. I had another sketch in mind, but when I saw Freshly Made Sketches , I've run with that one.

Lastly, it seemed like a good idea to decorate the envelope so that Sharon knows she's getting 'happy mail' - the best mail ever!

Hope you're feeling well,


  1. What a lovely card. That's one of my favorite stamp sets and you've just reminded me that it's been ages since I've used it! Thanks for putting it front and center in my mind and for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. Very petty Rachel. Love those summer silhouette images with the blue and green. The border design is fantastic. Great take on the sketch. Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown.
