Thinking of You

Today I have an easel card for someone who is not feeling well.  

 I used my new DCWV Citrus Cardstock stack.  The stack has these foil papers that are so gorgeous, especially when the light hits them.  Love it!  It also has glittered cardstock as well.  For the front of the card, I colored my Crafter's Companion USA Anthony and Burt Hope you feel better soon stamp with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, and layered it on more cardstock from the Citrus Stack.  The banner was cut out using my Cricut, using the Birthday Bash cartridge.  I chalked the paper with matching colors and added couple of rhinestones from my stash to each banner flag.  The layers of bling along the bottom were leftover from an old scrapbook kit.

For the inside of the card, I layered several pieces of cardstock along the inside and added a green lace ribbon and punched border along the top of the card. I then decorated the punched out border with large rhinestones.  These keep the card in the open position.  Finally, I added a rub-on Sentiment.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
