Get Well Soon

Hi all,

Sorry I haven't been around for a while, but we have had some family issues again. Not to worry, I'm here now and hoping to blog more regularly.

Here is a card I made using the Vintage Treasures Cd which was shown on Create and Craft a couple of weeks ago. It was one of my DT cards and I haven't got around to posting it until now. Leonie (Create and Craft) said it was 'cracking' so I felt I had to show it.

It's a twisted easel Get Well card. I love the colours of this backing paper and the style of the card.

I used an 8x8 card and cut an 8x8 piece of white card to make the easel part. I matted a piece of the blue/turquoise backing paper onto silver mirri before placing on the base and the easel part. The topper is from the card making section and it is decoupaged to add depth. The top of the hat pin has been glazed using Pinflair glaze.
For the stopper, I made a small tissue box from the template I had made for my candle box but left the aperture open rather than placing acetate in there. I made the template fit a small packet of tissues and put these in the box before fixing the final side. I placed this at a jaunty angle and placed a pink rose on the corner. This matched the pink rose on the topper. In the very front corner, I placed a sentiment which read 'Get Well Soon'. On each side of the sentiment, I placed a pearl to add interest.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
