Glad to Be Back

hi there.....I am so happy to report that my surgery was a great success and I am feeling much better.  All your well wishes and emails helped so much...thank-you!! 
So I finally got around to making  a card for the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays....to use a punch or die cut.  First I stamped the flowers from Enjoy 30-024 and embossed them in white.  The Big Wish 30-098 for the sentiment was stamped in black then I rubbed Distress Broken China ink over the whole image.  The frames are cut using a die from Spellbinders.  Thanks so much for coming by.
Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black/ Spellbinders/ pop dots/ embossing powder/ Distress Ink

  2. I'm glad you're back - and what a comeback! A fairly simple idea of putting the turquoise BEHIND rather than on top and the difference in impact is huge! Great card!
