Wishing You Well
I'm popping in quickly to post a get well card for a sick friend (pneumonia!). She is actually feeling pretty good, but gets out of breath quickly when she tries to do anything--she is so bored! I used PTI's Vintage Picnic stamps and DCWV's Linen Closet papers. I was thrilled to find that the Linen Closet collection coordinates beautifully with PTI's Aqua Mist and Fine Linen colors! (And kraft, and Rustic White, and even Hawaiian Shores for some patterns) This was my first time using Fine Linen, and I really liked it as an addition to PTI's rainbow of colors. I paper pieced the picnic basket, did some stitching around the edge of the "quilted-looking" paper, and added some lace and a die cut flower with a fuzzy brad for the center. You can't tell in the pic, but the stamped flowers are colored white with some sparkly Smooch.
