A Get Well Card for a Man

Today I had a little time to spend in my craft room so I made this card for an older man in my church that has had some health issues and is recovering very, very slowly. I wanted to create a card suitable for a man using kraft, yellow and white. It’s a real challenge for me to not put frills, lace and flowers on a card. But I think this works! What do YOU think?

The ingredients:
Kraft and solid yellow cardstock – from my stash
Yellow print cardstock – DCWV “Indian Summer”
Dies – Spellbinders, Standard Circles Lg*
Stamps – “Get Well”, Stampabilities
            ‘Thinking of you’ & decorative circle etc., “Lacey Circles”*
                        by Stamping Scrapping Designs
            (inside) sentiment, Annette Watkins
                        and Bible verse, My Heart Stamps for You
Glass drops – Twinkle Jewels, Stamping Scrapping Design*
I also used my Tim Holtz blending tool and some kraft color ink to edge several pieces.
 *'d items are from my favorite craft supply store: www.stampingscrapping.com

The 2 challenges being entered are:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you are having a wonderful week!
May God bless you!
