A Get Well Card


Well it's a much more sociable time I'm posting tonight!  Mind you if I'd been able to find my 'get well' sentiment stamp last night it could have been another late one!  As soon as I came home from work tonight I went on a search but I found a magazine freebie sentiment pack first so I settled on that to save any more lost time!  Note to self - must tidy and sort through ever growing crafty stash asap!!!

My offering tonight is a get well card for a neighbour who took ill recently while having a few days away caravanning.  Unfortunately the poor soul ended up in hospital away from home.  I chose this design as he is into motorbikes.  The stamp was passed on to me by a friend and I'm so glad I had it to hand.

I've just stamped onto plain white card then distressed the image with Tim Holtz Weathered Wood Distress Ink to match the backing paper, which is another from the Gorjuss Ultimate Die-cut pack.  I've created the other background by embossing Coredinations cardstock with a Docrafts Tri-boss Cogs folder, then sanded lightly to expose the lighter core underneath.  The freebie sentiment was also distressed with the same ink and I've added some tiny 'Gorjuss' buttons to finish off.

I wish to enter my card into the following challenges:
