Spoonful of get well wishes

Needed to make a get well soon card for my neighbour (she fell and cracked vertebra in her back - ouch!) so used the gorgeous sketch by Lim, over on Spoonful of sugar and this cute Whipper Snapper bear. The colours are all wrong again as the pink pearls aren't that bright IRL and DO match the papers, which are just the cut offs from my last card and were just the perfect size for this layout!

Flowers made with EK retro flower punches and bear has been coloured with Copics (E00, E31, E33 & R20 for cheeks, E02 for plasters and shades of C greys for the paws/nose). Added clear stardust pen over the sling for a subtle bit of sparkle and clear glaze pen over the plasters and his nose/pads on his feet.
I went and pre-ordered the Gorjuss set 2 last night even though I've not inked up all of the first set yet - there is no hope for me is there?!! Have a lovely weekend everyone, for those in the UK hope your flutter on the Grand national pays off! Probably no card from me till Mon now.
