Get well card for Riet

Hello friends,

Back earlier then expected :). I made a card for my bloggingbuddy and fellow Dutchie Riet. I'm sure a whole lot of you know Riet from the lovely comments she's always giving everybody. Riet doesn't even speak English herself but I know she has asked her daughter for help because she really wanted to leave everybody comments, how sweet is that!

Riet hasn't been feeling well lately. Her daughter has been kind enough to give updates on Riet's blog. She has also added their address if anybody wants to send Riet a card to make her feel just a little better. I didn't have to think twice about that....This is my card for Riet. The sentiment is hand written and reads 'Heel veel sterkte' which means 'Lots of strength'. The layout is a direct copy of a card the very talented 'Wicked Pixie' Traci posted yesterday, you can find that gorgeous card HERE (told you I'd copy your layout Traci :) ). As always here is a close up of the image:
This set remains one of my favorites. It's from All That Scraps and it's called Bear Hugs Rubber Stamps. I thought the look on the bear's face would be perfect for a card like this. The background was stamped using another set by All That Scraps but I wasn't able to find that one in the store anymore, perhaps they don't sell it anymore? The bear, leaf and flower were colored using my usual Derwent Watercolor pencils and Copics, the background was done using Twinkling H2O's. I also did the inside of the card..
The bear and sentiment on the inside are both from the same set as mentioned before. All papers are Bo Bunny Kitchen Spice, I think these papers are SO pretty! Cardstock is very dark brown (I don't know the name of the color) and Bazzill Bling Sparkle.

Hope you and of course especially Riet likes it!!

Take care everybody!
