Atlantic Hearts 218 - Bold and Bright Get Well Wishes

This week's sketch at Atlantic Hearts is a pretty simple one - 3 layers and a cluster with a sentiment... if you choose to leave it at that. I decided to make a little more of my card than just that. The cluster is more of a grouping of flowers and I moved the sentiment toward the bottom of the centre piece after placing some shimmer trim and twine above it. I also embossed the two back panels of cardstock to give them some added texture. 

I have had this set of dies from Stampin Up for a while but have only used them once before - this was the perfect opportunity to put them to use once again. The bright colours combined with Sea Glass make for a bold and cheery get well card.

I was the proud and happy recipient of this beautiful card. Thank you so much for your thoughts for a speedy recovery...I'm hanging in but just feel so limited with range of motion so still wear my neck brace quite a bit nights and when it's been a long day. 6 weeks can't come soon enough, don't usually wish for time to fly by, but anxious for it this time.
