Get well soon

I made this card for a design team slot, but got the wrong date, but didn't really mind because I need to make cards all the time. It so happened that John needed a card to send to one of his bowls club members and he asked if he could use this - so I made it at just the right time in the end!

The image is 'rainy day bears - rain, rain' by Bugaboo Stamps - adding the sentiment and matting on to a card blank that had been run through my eBosser with an Embossalicious 'clouds' 6 x 6 folder which I brushed with stormy sky distress ink. This is the first time I've used this embossing folder, so  this is for:

Paper makeup digi makeover 122: use something new
Great impressions January: use something new
Crafty sentiments: new
Come and get it: something new
Red carpet studio 60: use something new
Try it on Tuesday: in with the new
Simon says Wednesday: something new
A creative romance: something new
Open-minded crafting: use new toys or new techniques
Shelly's terrifically thrilling: out with the old, in with the new
Allways something creative 66: something new

The insert says 'Get well soon'.

This is for:

Facebook A card a day
Pile it on 1: just because
4 crafty chicks 175: get well
Winter wonderland: teddy bears
Creative craft cottage 13: quote me
Make my Monday: embossing
Ladybug: keep it clean and simple
