Color Splash with Lilac – Get Well Soon

So, tacky I know, but I made myself a get well card!! Nothing like being prepared, ha!  I am having an outpatient surgical procedure tomorrow and am super nervous about it. I need to pray for peace and I would appreciate your prayers as well…. I played along in the Play Date Cafe challenge this week. I am normally not a big fan of purple, which is funny because that was my favorite color growing up. But I have to say, using it on this card really surprised me. Maybe it was because it was the only color on here… I don’t know. But I found the purple to be quite striking. I stamped the Hero Arts Garden Bouquet image with 2 shades of Tim Holtz Distress Inks, dry embossed the background of the card, adhered the label with pop dots and done… Now, the question remains. Should I sign the inside of the card? LOL! Have a great day…..
