Wishing You Well

Happy Monday! I had the opportunity to have lunch today with my former boss and friend. She's had a tough last year and listening to her story made me think about how fortunate we are and how all the things that happened to us over the last year could have been so much worse. My day didn't quite go the way I thought it would but it was a good day.
Here's a card I made this morning.

The image is from Beccy's Place called Old Well Set. I used the pre-colored image from the set and also one of the sentiments from the set. The image is die cut with Gina Marie Cross Stitched Rectangles.  The sentiment is cut with Spellbinder's ATC Card dies.The patterned paper in the background is wood grained. I thought it went nicely with the covering for the well. I addeda purple ribbon to match the flowers and inked the rectangles with Seedless Preserves Distress ink. I used the sketch for the Try Stampin' On Tuesday challenge.

I am entering these challenges:
I hope your week is off to a wonderful start. Our weekend weather was gorgeous and today was even warmer. I haven't looked at the weather for the rest of the week but I hope it's as nice as today. Thanks for stopping by. Take care!

I think the wood grain paper in the background looks fabulous Donna, it's a great match for the wood planks in the image. I love the way you inked the edges of the card stock and I also like the fabulous cross stitch die cut you used. Great take on the sketch!

Too cute, "wishing you well" as a sentiment to go with the sweet image. I remember when my mom used to have one of those wells in her garden. Thanks for joining us this week at Try Stampin' on Tuesday! xo Crystal

That saying goes perfectly with the image, and I love that you used wood-grain paper behind it to continue the theme.

Thanks for joining us at Cut it Up for our Spring Flowers challenge!
