Simply Sketched - Get Well Card

Hello Everyone!
I've had a great time "playing" with all the new Stampin' Up! items that came last week:)
But I've also heard that some one in the Stampin' Up! family is going through some tough times.  I put together this card for her hoping that it may lift her spirits!

Notice the format for the card is the same basic three layers of complimentary card stock as I have discussed in the past.  Easy, right?  I used Marina Mist (item 119682), Early Espresso (item 119686) and Whisper White (item 100730).
Next I took the Whisper White cardstock and spritzed it with a Stampin' Spritzer (item 126185) that had about 1/2 tsp of water in it along with one drop of
Marina Mist Classic Stampin' Ink Refill (item 119787)
that is how I achieved the raindrop effect in the background.  Give this piece time to dry!
Once dry I used the Painter's Tape technique.  You simply cut pieces of painters tape cut to any length you choose.  I stick these to my pant leg to make them less sticky.  Then stamp the tape onto a Classic Stampin' Pad.  I used the Marina Mist (126962) and the Early Espresso (item119789) and then apply the tape to your card where you want the splash of color!
I stamped the flower from the Simply Sketched stamp set ( Clear Mount item 129672 and Wood Mount item 129669) using the Basic Black Classic Stampin' Pat (item 126980).
From the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set I stamped the "Sending thoughs..." sentiment with Early Espresso.
Using a scalloped corner punch I punched out the top left corner (I held the two layers if paper together while punching so when I centered them the punched design is seen on both pieces of card stock)
Add a little ribbon, a little bling and there you go!
