Get Well Wishes

A very good friend of mine has taken ill and been admitted to hospital for tests to try and ascertain the cause of her illness.
I made the card below to take with us today when we visited.
The image, Little Nurse, and sentiment are from my favourite stamp company, Lili of the Valley. I have coloured it with my Spectrum Noir pens and mounted it on co-ordinations card. The backing paper is from a large selection I bought from Payper Box at the NEC in November. It just matched perfectly with the blue mat layer. I have used some Wild Orchid roses and blue pearls from my stash for the finishing touches - the flowers nearly didn't stay in place as Mollie decided she would like them!
My friend loved the card and I hope it went some way to make her feel better at this worrying time.

It's a fab card Sharon. Love the image and your colouring is fab. And the layout is great too...and Mollie showed great taste by wanting to nab those flowers!

Hope your friend gets some good news and that she gets the treatment she needs to help her soon.

Great card Sharon, gorgeous image (just the right side of cute!)

I'm sure your friend will appreciate it and have my fingers crossed the tests show what is wrong and how it can be treated effectively and quickly.
