Get Well & Encouragement

Whooo Hoo! I finally have new outlets and new lighting in my scrap room, so I can start cleaning it up and organizing it now! This has me all motivated, so I cleaned off two work tables/desks and finished things that were lying on the desk undone. All this excitement got me all motivated for making cards, too!

Today I decided to do a get well/encouragement card, but I wanted to try a new fold... a Z fold card. Plus, I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could make a sketch work on a Z fold card. I used the sketch (clean and simple one) from Priscilla's Styles and from Day 119 at 365 Cards. (I'm not sure if this qualifies in their opinion, but I feel like it does, since it resembles the sketch when the card is closed) I love the look of it, and it was very simple to do!

For this card, I used a new (to me) image by C. C. Designs. Isn't she just too cute?! How could she not make anyone feel better?

I went with red and white for this card, and used three different shades of red. The background paper is all from my scrap box. I used red ribbon with a string of tiny pearls stitched in. The flowers are from Prima, with skittles added for the centers.

The inside of the card says:

Take Each Day As It Comes And Live It In Peace.
The Good Thoughts Of All Who Love You Will Keep You Warm.
Rest Easy, For Everything Will Take Care of Itself...
And Each New Tomorrow Will Find You Feeling Better.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
