Get Well

Happy Sunday to all!!
I was rather impressed this morning with my 17 year old son, Cody.. He came up and asked me.Mom, could you please make me a Get Well card for Grandma Lucy? Aww, how sweet I thought. Grandma Lucy is his Great Grandma and he is worrying about her.  I said I sure would! 
This is what I came up with..

For the colors, I used Stampin Up Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and Tempting Turquoise. I inked all edges with Tea Dye Distress ink and then sanded the edges. It is so hard to see the nice color combo since my camera is having an attitude lately.
I used my Perfect Paisley folder in the cuttlebug, first time I used it and its been in the package for awhile now. I was trying to show that I used Crystal Effects on the rain drops and the lil puddles. Then for the final touch, I added two eyelets to put some ribbon thru...

I would like to add this card to the following challenges..

Diggin' Tilda

I just think this Tilda stamp is so cute! I stamped her on Whisperin White and colored her using my Prismacolor colored pencils. Then I blended it with mineral spirits to make it a softer image. Then I cut her out , popped dotted her for dimension on a oval that I cut using my cricut and George and Basic shapes cart.   I made doodle marks around the oval to have it stand out more.  

I have added a little twine bow on the bottom and used little pink pearls around the edges for some bling.  Then I added stickles to her hair piece for some glimmer. 
I would like to enter my Tilda card into the following challenges..
