Get Well Card # 1

My grandma-in-law hasn't been very well recently  and we wanted to send her some get well wishes.  I made this card using the pretty Everything Eleanor stamp set. 

In an attempt to make a bit more effort with this one I decided to try out a technique I've never tried before - masking! It didn't work out perfectly but was a decent first attempt. You can see the green flourish looks like it's behind the blue plaque - this involved stamping the plaque onto scap paper and cutting it out and using the cut-out to cover the actual stamped image while stamping over the top with the flourish. Sorry that's a really rubbish explanation - I needed pictures really!

I also used the spritzer tool to add a speckle of Marina Mist ink over the card and embellished it with  pearls.
