Speedy Recovery

I made this card for my friend, Diane, who had surgery on her thumb yesterday.  I used the color combination in the SplitCoastStampers CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge for this week - green and brown.

The branch (flowers?) is from an Inkadinkado set.  I stamped it with Papertrey Ink's Fresh Leaf ink on patterned paper from Stampin' Up!  I highlighted using a white gel pen.  I have never done that before, but I like the effect.  I mounted it on brown cardstock.  The sentiments are from Verve's Wishing You set, stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Oh, clever touch with the white gel pen. Gonna have to try that one, too.
Great cards the last two days. But then, they are ALL great!
