Get well Margaret!

Have had telephone calls from 2 dear friends today that warranted me making get well soon cards.
The first one is for my dear friend Jackie's sister Margaret.
The second one is for one of my monthly workshop ladies - Chris (M)
So I have been busy today playing, sorry working, on two get well cards
and I have just put them in the post box so they should both get them tomorrow.
here's the one for Margaret.

The colour combo is Daffodil Delight (I find yellow a bright cheerful colour)
Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive on a base card of Ivory.
I used two of the ovals from the Framelits - Oval Collection to make the
narrow matt gold oval frame.
I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to position the two sentiments from Petite Pairs.
Using the new Secret Garden stamp set, I heat embossed in gold EP the three yellow flowers,
 then embossed another image of the centre flower on Pumpkin Pie card.
I die cut the three yellow flowers using the matching Secret Garden Framelits dies.
I then hand cut the centre of the Pumpkin Pie flower and stuck it in the middle.
The leaves were die cut using the same Frame;its set and I used an embossing tool to
mark the veins on the individual leaves. (Don't know if you can see this)
To finish off I applied some Champagne Glass Stamping Glitter in the centre of the flowers.
And that's it - hopefully it will cheer Margaret up to receive a card.
I will post Chris's card tomorrow so do pop back.
