Feeling unwell

   For this card cream ribbon was wrapped round lightly sanded brown core'dinations cardstock which was then matted onto cream card. A bow and three card candi were then added.
   A sentiment border was made using two stamped mice and a sentiment taken from Joanna Sheen's 'Get well soon'  House Mouse Designs set. This was coloured using Promarkers and the borders shaded using frayed burlap distress ink. This was then matted onto darker brown core'dinations cardstock and fixed below the ribbon with tape.
   The main image from the same set of stamps as the above was also coloured using Promarkers and shaded with ditress ink. This was matted onto the darker brown core'dinations cardstock and the cream cardstock. It was fixed to the card at an angle with foam pads.
