Get Well Hydrangea Card

Created this Get Well Card using pastel colors.  

Recycled a Dove chocolate Easter Bunny pkg for background base. You can see the back of the card before I added white cardstock to it to cover up the Dove chocolate info.

Stamped a Hero Arts Hydrangea flower stamp using VersaMark ink. Colored the Hydrangea flower & background with Stamp N Plus chalks. Cut the Hydrangea flower image out with a Spellbinder circle die.

Used a Cuttlebug embossing folder strip.  

Added a white ribbon flower I colored with Stampabilities Lavender ink

Stamped Cardz TV with Mary stamp sentiment "Get well soon!" using Stampabilities Lavender ink. Used a Stampin' Up punch for sentiment tag.
