Get Well Soon

     Today I have a get well card created for Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge #289, over on the MFP blog.  The challenge is to emboss with white on vellum, and color the back.    I have not done this in ages!  I kind of used another lost technique and made some backgrounds using it.   Fold over a baby wipe until you have a thick edge, and drip on a combo of colored reinkers.  Use different motions to apply to glossy card stock.  That is how my striped background came to be.  I used Pistachio Pudding, Costal Cabana, and Island Indigo.  You can tap it, swirl it, swipe it.....l. always different, and always pretty.  My green card stock is Bazzill Lizard green.

     The stamps I used are from MFP and the set is called Greet the Day with Gerber.  For embellishments I used a lace doily, buttons, and a scrap of matching ribbon.

I would also like to enter this over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is Anything Goes!

     If I do not get back before tomorrow, God bless you all, and a Happy Thanksgiving!  I am not celebrating with family until Saturday.
