Get Well Soon Wish

If any of you read my post two days ago I was hoping for a snow day to stay home, play and make some cards, it didn't happen. But to my surprise I turned on the tv when I got up yesterday to get ready for school and it was canceled! I guess with all the strong winds and rain many people were without power, so they canceled school! This card is what I played with and finished.

I bought this DP on a whim at Michaels one day a couple of weeks ago. It was a 6x6 pack and all the paper is glittered. Not the normal colors that I would buy but it definitely caught my eye. Turns out it also matched Primas that I bought at one of the stamping conventions that I went to last Spring and had never used. The sketch had a strip down the side and so I wanted to do something different besides just running the ribbon straight down so I used glue dots and made it ripple like ribbon candy. It looks a lot better in real life than in the pic, does add dimension to the card. Where I was making a get well card I wanted a bit of elegance so I used a lot of pearls on it also. It took me most of the day to finish it because I kept changing things on it but in the end I was happy with it.

These are the challenges that it fits

Stampin' For The Weekend-I used the sketch from this challenge on this card, it is a great sketch.
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 101-Ribbon-tastic is the challenge this week, I love using ribbon on cards.
C.R.A.F.T Challenge 39-This challenge is a recipe, use ribbon and have sparkle. I used a shimmery ribbon and all the DP is glittered!
Raise The Bar Challenge #7-Three's Company is their challenge this week. They was use to use three of something our choice. I used 3 of 2 different flowers, 3 different size pearls, and more than 3 punched out leaves.
Pile It On Challenge #7-The challenge they would like us to do this week is a Get Well Soon card.
I hope this card would cheer up someone who is not feeling well.
Creative Card Crew Challenge 45-Their challenge this week is also a get well soon card. It is so nice to know you can someone feel better with a handcrafted card made from the heart.
Spoonful of Sugar Challenge 92-This challenge was to use distress inks(if you have them), pearls and glitter. I have never used distress inks so I used my Copics to color the image but I did use lots of pearls and I used glittered DP.

I hope you liked this card that I created. It was definitely one of the longer times it took to make it. I hope that it has inspired you to create a card for a challenge you like. These were all fantastic ones this week.
