Simon Says....Get Well Soon!


Today is the start of a new Challenge for Simon Says Stamp. The challenge this week is to make a Get Well card. Which is very apt for me as I am a poorly person at the moment. Having a bad asthma episode. I hope I will be on the road to recovery soon.

I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress inks. The background is distressed with tattered rose and edged with vintage photo. I have distressed my papers with Tim's distressing tool and then I have heat embossed some of the edges with embossing powder. I have also added some stickle glue around my card too. The heart has been coloured with distress inks and sprayed with glimmer mist. The lace has been distressed with vintage photo.

The rest of the team have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration and we have a very special young lady Hanna who is joining us in the designer spotlight I am so delighted to say.

Thank you so very much for looking.
