Get Well Wishes

A friend asked me to make some several get well cards for her. I do well with the pretty cards needed for female get well but the masculine ones--eeeh not so much. So I challenged myself today to make a masculine get well with this sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches

I try to follow sketches pretty closely but sometimes will change up shapes. So here is my card.
My Favorite Things stencil and SU Certainly Celery ink were used for the background. Frog dies are from Poppy Stamps.I punched out a circle then stamped the pond weeds from SU's Wetlands. There are 4 frogs in the die set and I punched out 2 sets so I could put some on the inside with my computer generated sentiment.
Laying on my desk was a set of dragonfly dies from Impression Obsession. So I am thinking I could use the same idea and make a feminine card too.
I took a scrap of white and sponged on green, blue, and purple inks and then die cut the dragonflies. The background here is Tim Holtz burlap stencil with SU Pool Party. The flower is from SU's Summer Silhouettes. The Get Well Wishes is also SU. This die has 8 dragonflies so I also added some inside.
Now while I have the sketch in front of me, I might go back and do one with the circles. Stay tuned.
