Just Sitting Here Thinking of You

This last week has been a bit of a stressful one for my dd and I...not to mention my bf and her dd. My daughter's(dd's) best friend (bf), who's mother is one of my bf's, landed up in the hospital this week. She had been having some pains in her stomache/abdominal region for a few days and Tuesday night things got bad for her. Turns out it was a case of appendicitis. So on Wednesday they operated and by Thursday late afternoon she was back home. So of course I had to make her a Get Well card. Now I have been wanting to use this adorable little image from Just Some Lines every since I got it, and it was just perfect for a "Thinking of You" Get well soon card.
Isn't it just one of the cutest little images you ever saw? The colors that I went with were: Brown for the base, pink with brown polka dots and brown with pink and light green swirls. The sentiment on the front I came up with on my own (it was so difficult lol) and the inside sentiment I found on Splitcoast Stampers. I just printed it up on my computer using the Curlz MT font on my Microsoft Office.
The pink/brown polka dot paper I found at Free Digital Scrapbooking . The flower border on the front and the butterfly and flowers on the inside were prestickies from my local dollar store.

Supplies:

Brown CS: SU Close to Cocoa
Pink with Brown Polka Dot DP - Free Digital Scrapbooking
Brown DP - From my stash
Pink flat back pearls - Recollections
Pink Ribbon - from WalMart
Pink "presticky" flower ribbon and butterfly- From my local Dollar store
