Get Well Soon Card

I made this card last week for my bloggy friend Justine over at EmmaBearForever as she has not been keeping well.  I had started this card a few weeks ago for no one in particular but couldn't get it to come together.  I had most of the bits I wanted to use but inspiration was not forthcoming!!!  I was going to make it as a birthday card but then when Justine was not well I decided that it would become a Get Well card for her.  Once I knew who I was making it for, the card suddenly came together nicely!!!  I know that Justine has received the card now so I can show it to you!!

I made some fabric bunting which I stitched onto some twine like string.  I also used some lace and stuck some tiny teardrop bindi gems that a friend brought back from India for me.  They are delicate looking and were just right for the lace.  I also used round bindi gems on the cherry and strawberry on the cakes.  The cupcakes were stamped and then coloured with promarkers and I used some Anita's 3D gloss on the cherry and strawberry and some stickles on the icing.

The papers are October Afternoon and I used some distress inks on them.  The sentiment was done in Word and printed out and cut using Nesties Label 1 and there is faux stitching around the edge.
