Get well card

Hello there, it has been quite a while since I have posted on this blog ... and it has also been a while since I have made a card!  After spending the bulk of last year travelling around Australia and my mother being diagnosed with ovarian cancer towards the later part of 2014 and then going over to NZ to see her through her chemo and operation ... I feel I can get back to my hobby now that all seems to be settled!
So to begin with I decided to do a get well card for her to give her hospital room a little colour!
 and a close up of the little cute animals from Newtons Nook Designs 'hanging around' set and also my little sign hanging off the fence ...
To start my first card for about 4 months I wanted to use a very simple sketch and the one from Feeling Sketchy 114 was perfect ... I rotated the sketch 90 degrees ...


Choosing the colours for this card was easy - kraft and orange with splashes of brown ... very earthy and I love orange!  So this was perfect for the challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday - favourite colour combo.  I would also like to enter it for the anything goes challenge over at Party Time Tuesday 
materials used - Bazzill kraft; Lawn Fawn 'into the woods' paper; Newtons Nook designs 'hanging around' and Paper Smooches 'alphadot' stamp sets; Versafine onyx black, Versacolour brown inks; MFT fence die; rafia.
Thanks for looking at my card.
