Sweet Sunday Get Well

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC89. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.

I was pretty liberal with my interpretation of the sketch this week, which is unusual for me, but hey, that's what happens when you want to use a specific stamp, right? My parents started their roadtrip home yesterday (it'll take them a few days of driving) and today they're stopping to visit a friend who recently had knee surgery, so I thought it would be nice to send along a get well card.

My mom really loved the Pure Innocence line from MFT when I showed her the images and we decided on Best Medicine. She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and coloured with copics. I paper pieced her apron with a pattern from October Afternoon's Fly a Kite pad. Instead of just stamping the sentiment onto a rectangle, I deviated from the sketch and paired it with the new Polka Dot Greetings Die and Stamp Set Duo. The little nurse is acting as my "scallop" accent...I know, it's a stretch, but I really love how this turned out! I used my scalloped scallop die on some PTI Ocean Tides felt for a little accent of blue and finished the card with a couple of buttons.

I hope you'll play along this week and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now let's go see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created!
