Wishing You Well

Happy Wednesday evening. We are on the downside to the week. I am always glad when Friday is getting closer. Today was really strange weather-wise. We were very cloudy all day but in the afternoon the fog set in for a while. It looked like rain all evening but we haven't gotten any so far. I am looking for the sunshine to return.  I was busy at work and the time flew by. I also won 4 tickets from our local newspaper to see an Indianapolis Indians game. I haven't been to a ball game in years so it should be really fun!

My card tonight is for a co-worker who has been out all week. I just wanted him to know that I've been thinking about him and hope he's getting better and can return really soon. So here's what I came up with.

I had the image in my stash but it's from a Gina K set. I colored the image with Copics and Bics and sponged the background. I really wanted a sun in the picture. I didn't get a good delineation between the sea and sky. Guess I need to practice that one a bit. I added a sentiment from a set I won but it doesn't have any designation as to the company. I embossed the background with distressed stripes. It kind of reminded me of driftwood with all the irregular textures. I added the sunny ribbon and the Blue Glitter Glur dots.

I am entering these challenges:
That's about it for tonight! Be sure to stop back tomorrow when Doodle Pantry has their August release. You won;t want to miss it. I went out of my comfort zone a bit for this one but it was fun! Blessing!
