English Garden Bee Better Soon!

Hello... I made this card for my Nana who unfortunately isn't well and is in the hospital. I wanted to make a special card for her to brighten her hospital room up a bit. She has sensitivity to real flowers, so why not some that are great for those with a sensitive sniffer!? Check it out...

I used one of my favourite packs of designer series paper {English Garden} from the Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue. The designs are so pretty and looks like they are water coloured. But, since my Nana likes pink, I embraced it once again and love how it turned out. I used Blushing Bride for the base card with layers of Soft Suede and Calypso Coral. 

When I cut my designer series paper, I noticed that the back of this particular piece had cute little bumblebees on it. I didn't have a sentiment with a bee theme, so I made my own using the {Alphabet Rotary Stamp}. I used {Tuxedo Black Memento Ink} to stamp my sentiment BEE BETTER SOON ... so cute!

I just had to add a few of those sweet little bee's to the card as well, just a tiny bit of fussy cutting and some Stampin' Dimensionals and I was in business with some bee's buzzing about. I added a tiny bit of glimmer with a partial circle cut from {Gold Glimmer Paper} and a 2" Circle of the floral image from the DSP. I fussy cut a couple of leaves and added them to the card. But, before assembling completely, I had to add some {Metallic Gold Thread} behind my partial circles. Let's hope this card does the trick, and she can bee better soon. 

Update: When I went to visit her and give her this card, she looked so much better than the previous day. Phew! She was up, talking, ate all three meals, and on a different machine (not so severe), no contact precautions on the door - i.e. no gown and the rest of the garb! I was relieved that she was feeling better, she still can't go home yet, but an improvement. She was watching RAW, a.k.a. wrestling. It's so weird to think my 90 year old grandma watches wrestling, but she loves it! Whatever works right!? 

Enjoy this bright and sunny day :) 

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
