Get Well Soon



Today's Color Challenge over at SCS was to use More Mustard, Kiwi Kiss and Rose Red. I decided to use the new Thoughts and Prayers set from SU! hoping that it would be a good fit with these colors. I love this set, but didn't want to use any of the Sympathy sentiments, so I opted for the "Get Well Soon" greeting instead. It is not uncommon to find one or more people sick this time of year, so I thought it would be a good one to have on hand or add to my *give-away* stash. These colors actually reminded me of the Disney version of "Sleeping Beauty", especially adding black into the mix. I was really wishing I had some type of Renaissance set or something that I could recreate that same feel. Oh well...!

I am seriously in love with the tree from this set and I am hoping to get the Decor Elements with this same image for my living room. This card is pretty straightforward. I did add a little piercing and I used my Textile Embossing Folder for the background. It is one of my favorites, yet I haven't used it in a while. I also used my color spritzer tool to add some black ink flecks. I am throwing together a last minute stamp club for tonight, so I better run and figure out some projects! Thanks for fluttering by!

This is truly stunning!! I never would have thought of that stamp set for this combo, but it fits absolutely perfectly!! I really want that decor element too..but I probably need to paint first...4ys and I still haven't picked a color...

Oh my goodness! You did outstanding work with those colors! I love that tree stamp also and really like how you separated the sentiment.

Great job with the color challenge. The stamp you used goes so well with this color challenge!! You put it together so beautifully!! I love the tree also but unfortunately it is on my wishlist and not in my cupboard.

I read those colors and thought how on earth, but you really pulled it off to perfection. Just ordered that set today, and can't wait to case your card. TFS!

Very pretty! You really nailed those colors in this challenge! I just got this set (love it!) and the Decor Elements tree with the sentiments and birds in chocolate. I haven't put it up yet, but it's going in my office.

Gorgeous layout and details. I love how you ink up the edges of your white cardstock!! I'm loving this set too although I've only used it once so far, but every card I've looked at has been beautiful!

This is just gorgeous, Kelly! Love the layers and texture, and this set! Mine will be here Friday and you can bet I'll be using your stuff for inspiration, just love this!

BTW, we have the flu running through our house, started with me--yuck!, so I was sure this card was for me, lol!

Fabulous work with this color combo. You make the colors look like they should have always been together, not like it is pink and mustard!
Oh, and I have left you an award on my blog...
