SOS Challenge #87- A Choice!

Well, its Tuesday again...time for another Shopping Our Stash challenge!
This one is #87 and the challenge is: Valentine/Love/Hearts/Red- You Choose!
Lots of choices...this should be a fun challenge!

I chose RED.
I had already made a Valentine card for my only Valentine, my hubby, so I decided on a Get Well card for my sister in Wisconsin who had surgery a couple weeks ago. Now she has to do physical therapy so probably needs a bit of encouragement.

On both the outside and the inside I used doilies; the one on the front I cut and placed where it needed to fit, but on the inside I just mounted the whole thing and had it go "around the corner". The picture makes it look a little lop-sided but it really works well. Here is the list of items used for this one:

die cuts- Spellbinders Labels 20
matching stamp- JustRite "Fleur De Lis Labels 20"
"get well" stamp- Clear Dollar Stamps "Wistful Wishes"
dragonfly stamp- StampingScrappingDesign "Tab Basics 1" set
(the little heart on the inside is also SSD)
DP, and card stock are scraps from my stash 
as are the doilies, Red ribbon and Red flowers 
The Bible verse and the sentiment inside are computer-generated.

Now would be a great time to get that Valentine card made for your special someone! Why not join in the fun at Shopping Our Stash...link up your creation so we can all enjoy it! For some inspiration check out my fellow DT memebers' blogs (see sidebar) and/or the SOS blog!
Thanks for stopping by today!
