Wild Garden Get Well Wish

The CCEE challenge this week comes to us via our September hostess, Frances (StampOwl).  She challenged us to make a get-well card in honor of the invention of the bandaid on September 22, 1920.  You can get all the details on our CCEE Stampers blog, see the fabulous cards my friends Joanne, Frances, Tosha, Cindy, and Shirley made, and think about joining us in this challenge!

I chose to use my Wild Garden Frame and Get Well Wish sentiment by Rubbernecker for my get-well card.  I used the emboss-resist technique on my card by clear embossing the Wild Garden Frame and then sponging Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy reinkers over the clear embossing.  I then removed the faint excess ink over the clear embossing to reveal the white.  I shadow stamped the sentiment using my stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up.  The Wild Garden Frame is so pretty all by itself, so I didn't want to cover it up with other card stock or lots of embellishments.  Therefore, I only added this swirly piece of Tim Holz grungeboard after I sponged it with Not Quite Navy ink.  Even though it's not easy to capture in a photograph, I'm really loving the Stampin' Up champagne mist as it adds such a beautiful finishing shimmer to a card, so I sprayed some on my get-well card.

I hope you are well, and I thank you for stopping by my blog!
