Get Well Flourishes

Thought I'd try clean and simple today.  This week's challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments is to use flourishes.  I've been wanting to use this stamp set for a while now - and when I looked at it I saw more than florishes - I saw flowers...sort of.  The get well wishes come from the SUO Challenges this week and the colours are today's Color Challenge over at SCS - Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and a neutral.

I could give this to my daughter today - she's suffering from a summer cold - she's a bit annoyed because she wasn't sick all winter.  Oh well - it's a drizzly day today, so perfect for hunkering down in the covers.

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you have a wonderful day!

Joan, love the color choices and this set as well. I like how you looped the Daffodil Delight ribbon on the side. Nice touch. This will definitely put your daughter in better spirits. Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.

Joan, I love what you did with the ribbon - it really leads the eye from the flourish all the way down to the sentiment. Fabulous colors, too!
