Get well for Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge

I have a cousin who has not been feeling well. I made this little card for her, sure hope she feels better soon. Been tough for her the last couple years.

I used the sketch from 'Try Stamping on Tuesday' #217.   This is a 5" x 5" card.

The image is a digi image from Bug-a-boo stamps called 'Tulips & Bugs'. I colored it with Copic markers and cut it out with Spellbinders hexagon dies. I cut a mat for it from green and then white cut with SB scalloped hexagons. I ran a purple marker around the edge of the scalloped layer to make it stand out. Polka-dot paper is from a 6x6 Recollections Bright & Basics pad. The flowered base layer is from an old DCWV 8x8 pad from a longgggggg time ago. Seems like this might have been one of the first papers I bought when I started this mad venture in papercrafting. Two purple solid matting cardstocks are from Bazzil.
I added some star dust and lavender stickles to the image. Stamped the sentiment (from Our Daily Bread Designs Mini Tags) with Momento Lux Tuxedo Black and embossed with black embossing powder. Colored a couple SU rhinestones with purple Copic and added for a little more sparkle. Cause, face it, you can never  have too much sparkle!!

I just went out in the kitchen to open the dishwasher so the dishes could air dry and there was a great BIG hanging basket on the counter, Multi-colored mini petunias (caleobrachea [sp.]) from my husband for Mother's Day. Too bad it is too cold out today(40) to hang it out for the poor hummingbirds. Hard to believe it was 84 day before yesterday!! We did need the rain, but it could be a bit warmer.
