   My husband is in hospital at the moment, so it got me thinking that I should make some get well cards as my supply has run down.
   The printed paper that I used has been lying around for sometime. I printed it from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse CD ROM but the ink in the printer was running low and so only the pink was printed. I have mattered and layered it onto beige and pink core'dination cardstocks and white card.
   The image is from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Designs Allsorts set of stamps. I coloured it using Promarkers, applied distress inks to the edges and matted it onto beige core'dinations cardstock.
   The flowers are made using a punch and the centres are quilled and coloured using Promarkers. The  flourish is die cut from mirri card using a Creatables die.
   Finally the peel off sentiment was applied to more of the printed paper and matted onto core'dinations cardstock. Two buttons were then added to it.

   I wish to enter this card into the following challenges:
   House Mouse and Friends - anything goes
   Love to Create - anything goes
