Get Well Soon

I made most of this card last week, but my scissors have been missing.  My good Fiskars Micro-Tip scissors that I've been using for years.  So bummed!  They are great for fussy cutting.  I finally had to get a new pair.  Maybe now my old ones will turn up?  :)  I finished putting the card together today.

I copied the design of a card that I made previously (found here) that was CASE'd from Maile Belles.  For the background, I repeatedly stamped two sentiments in different colors, Marina Mist and Baked Brown Sugar, on a diagonal pattern.  I used A Beary Good Year by Cat's Pajamas and Fillable Frames #2 by Papertrey Ink.  I cut the background about an inch from the bottom and glued the two pieces to a Kraft card base.

I stamped the "get well soon" circle image from Around & About Sentiments by Papertrey Ink in Baked Brown Sugar ink and then punched it out.  I stamped the little tissue box image from Get Well Hanna, colored it with markers, fussy-cut it out, and glued it in the middle of the circle.  Done!  I deliberately kept the colors neutral so this card would be appropriate for anyone.
