A get well soon card for Catherine ......

This card is for Catherine who is having surgery on Thursday - the image was coloured with Copics and cut with nestabilities then layered onto toning card.   I doodled around the edge of the image with  a fine black pen, then as a contrast to the darker colours, I used ruffle edge sheer ribbon in white.

I made a floral arrangement with a large rose, some rosebuds, gyp and white blossom, then added just a touch of Stardust stickles - I couldn't help myself! I do like a bit of bling.
I tied some plum purple divine twine through the hole in this silver dragonfly charm, so I could tie it around the blossom stem then slot the stem through the knot  in the bow so I could get the look I wanted.  Some self adhesive lilac coloured pearls finished the card and I pray that Catherine will soon be healed.

I will enter this card into the Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge to make a card that you doodle on; also for A Gem of a Challenge - make a card with flowers and a charm

Ribbon, twine, charm are all from the Ribbon Girl
