Get Well, Dude

How do you make a get well card for a teenage boy? It can't be all flowery, and a sports-theme isn't appropriate in this case. He has a brain injury and has to take it easy for six months.

This was the best I could do, given the circumstances. The unusual color combination is actually one found in nature! I saw this picture of birds on Pinterest, and immediately thought "Pool Party, Cajun Craze, So Saffron", along with black and white.
I hope he likes it. I've never really met him face-to-face, but I know his mom from stamping. So that makes me practically an aunt, right?

Get well, Joshua!

Stamps: Grunge Rock (and a single SU stamp that says ©2002 - don't know what set)
Cardstock: Pool Party, Cajun Craze, So Saffron, Basic Black, Whisper White, Domestic Goddess DSP
Ink: Cajun Craze andBasic Black Classic, Pool Party Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories: Big Shot, Houndstooth embossing folder, Color Spritzer Tool, Tag Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, small glitter brads and black hemp cord (both non-SU)


  1. What a nice card. I am sure he will certainly appreciate it from his 'aunt'.

  2. Nature has cool color combos (and weird creatures)!

  3. Fabulous card Aunt Cindy. :) I hope that Joshua recovers quickly. I am sure your card will brighten his day. Love the colors you used.

  4. What a thoughtful card! I love the color combo, and the guitar is just fantastic!

  5. Love the colors and the card. I am sure it will cheer him up.

  6. Oh, Wow! Such a great way to find inspiration for a color combo! Great card!

  7. Perfect card for a teenage boy (if he is anything like my boys, anyway)! Thanks for sharing the inspiration pic, too!

  8. I love your card and I have to tell you something funny!!! I thought the birds were a colorful catterpillar...honest to God!!!!
