Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Get Well Soon

So sorry this is late...I'd set this to publish while I was at work this morning, but Mr Blogger turned it back into a draft...grrrrrrrrrrr!

Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT post.


It's Francesca's turn to set the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week, and she has chosen:

'Get Well Soon'

I've had this adorable Lili of the Valley image ('Get Well Bunny') sitting in my image box, coloured, for absolutely ages, so I thought it was about time I used him on a card. I found some My Mind's Eye papers that (sort of) match the colours I'd used - they're from the 'Ooh La La (for Him)' collection. I distressed the edges a little using my scissors, then added some seam binding (which I scrunched up to give it a slightly distressed feel too), a Prima flower and a sentiment from the CCSR set by Papermania.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
