Get Well Card

In Biddy Buddies this month, our challenge is to make a "get well" creation and must use brown and pink somewhere on it. I chose this darling little Lily of the Valley image because I thought she was too cute. And more importantly, I had colored her some time ago so didn't have to spend time with that today. lol

Last week as I was searching blogs for challenges, I found a fun one from Crafty Cardmakers. They are challenging us to show our latest creation as well as one of our first ones. I figured I would just post the first one I ever made when I started blogging. But, just this moment, as I retrieved it, I found it kind of humorous that is was also a get well card. I do think I have improved a bit from the simple card it was. Thank goodness for stickles and inks and flourishes and the awesome talented bloggers I have learned from! So here it is as lame as it was! lol

Challenges I am entering the pink card in are:
