CAC sketch 3-23

Here's a Get Well card featuring Jaden (an SMC image). I didn't leave room for the sentiment but I think it's self explanatory. LOL

I'm not entirely happy with this card. I am not unhappy with my color selection or with my coloring job, but I'm disappointed with the size of my "circles." I imagined skinnier silver edges but I ran out of in-between sizes with my Creative Memories templates and had to make do. I embossed the solid green with the cuttlebug Holiday Ribbons embossing folder. I made it into a center opening card instead of the traditional side or bottom opening (see bottom photo).
