A sunny get well card made without any stamps

My Mum's got this awful flu bug that's going around and so I thought I'd try to cheer her up a little by making her a get well card. I also decided to challenge myself to make a card without any stamps - instead I've used some of my stash of embellishment goodies.

I started with Apricot Appeal cardstock cut and folded to a 5" square card. Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White narrow grosgrain ribbon are weaved along two sides to frame the focus. I took the largest flower from the Pretties Kit and dusted the edge of the petals with Apricot Appeal chalk to just soften the edges. The mat for the flower uses squares of Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery and Pumpkin Pie. Small Pumpkin rhinestone brads, from the Circle Fire set, anchor the corners. I created the centre of the flower using the largest of the Boho Blossoms (again in Apricot Appeal), together with the largest Pumpkin rhinestone brad. This is all raised on dimensionals.

I'm sure I'll be back with the stamps soon :-)
