Well Wishes Hop for Michelle

Today, the Stamper's Dream team is having a blog hop for our fearless leader, Michelle, who is recovering from surgery.

We love you Michelle and hope you are recovering quickly at home and RESTING!

I chose to create a CAS card for the hop because we are currently enjoying a nasty stomach bug ....oh how fun! Because I am spending my hours disinfecting, mopping, washing....I have little time for cardmaking. But making this was a nice break in my day!

For my card, I used a sentiment from Thinking of You set (JustRite) and the beautiful flowers from Breath of Spring (one of JustRite's new releases!) I wanted to make those blue bonnets (? I have NO CLUE about flowers....just guessing on this!) the focal point so I designed a card that would allow them to be center stage.

The flowers were stamped on the card base and then stamped again on white cardstock. I colored them with copic markers and layered the flowers for dimension. After the card was assembled, I added some stickles and pearl accents to the flower centers.

Here is a detail photo of the flowers:


Here is the lineup for the hop today:
