Just Add Ink #181 Challenge - Get Well Soon Wishes

Hi all,

Darren's Mom Janet has suffered quite badly with knee and hip problems over the years, and last week she underwent a complete hip replacement.  She's done really well since the operation and was discharged from hospital on Friday.  We went to visit her on Sunday, and I took inspiration from the Just Add Ink Challenge #181 for the colours of my Get Well Card.

These were the colours that had to be used:-
And here is my card:-


Its a fairly simple design using the Delightful Dozen stamp set.  To make it look a little different, I stamped one of the sentiments onto black card stock using the new Silver Metallic Encore Pad.  This is a wonderful new addition to the products available from Stampin' Up! and it can be found in the new Seasonal Catalogue along with a Gold one too!

What a great card, sure to cheer up your mother-in-law, Nicky! I'm impressed with how well the Silver Encore inkpad stamps on black card; I thought you'd embossed that sentiment. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. :)
