Get Well Cards or Why I Love Washi So Much

Happy Holidays y'all! Be it Easter, Passover, or just spring you're celebrating I hope it's been wonderful!

This month the Flybaby challenge was Get Well cards and, oh my, my first card was a challenge. It seemed like such a good idea. It has a lot of elements I like, the polaroid die cut, clear embossed raindrops that really look wet, even my homemade enamel dots (tutorial by Mistylynn here). But nothing came together right, I had to change colors two or three times, my first rain scene looked ridiculous, etc. Eventually, I finished it and am happy to have something ready to go next time someone gets sick.

This card, however, is my favorite. It was fast. It's cheerful. It shows off a tiny bit of the new washi I bought. And it's far more likely to get there on time as it's for someone already on the mend. ;) I'm entering it in the Moxie Fab Washi challenge.

Thanks for looking!
