Get Well

I made this card for my MIL. She is recovering from a recent surgery, and not doing too well.
It's my hope this will help to cheer her a bit.

The cup and saucer is all hand sewn, as is the sentiment, and border of the card. I glued metalic ribbing from wire ribbons around the oval.

I tacked a piece of organza over the stitched cup and saucer, giveing it a more aged look I think, and protection also. Posted by Picasa

WOW! WOw! wow! How beautiful Tonniece. Those lacy corners are a wonderful touch. This is just so gorgeous I am sure your MIL will just love it. It's sure to bring a smile to her face - it brought one to mine when I saw it.

Ah! such talent. Thanks for sharing the process. I have never made cards but do so admire those who do.
