Fell Better Soon

Most of the cards I make are for challenges but lately I've been making them for no particular reason. This card isn't one of them. I made this card for one of my bowling partner who might be out for the rest of the season. She is a mail carrier and fell 11 ft through a concrete porch. It took the skin off of her calf down to the muscle and broke her elbow in such a way that it was protruding through the skin!

The image is from The Greeting Farm and colored w/Copics. The flowers are hand rolled and they and the leaves are cut with the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge. I cut the image out with an oval Spellbinders Nestabilities die-cut and framed it with the Lacey Oval Spellbinder Nestabilities die-cut. The doily and papers are from my stash. The butterflies were stamped and punched with a Martha Stewart stamp and punch set. I highlight both the lacey oval and the butterflies with bling. I also highlighted the eyes on the image with Glossy Accents and used Stickles to highlight the stethoscope and cross.

I'm positive this card will let her know I'm thinking about her and hoping her a speedy recovery.

BTW I'm featured on the Kraft Journal today!
