Feel Better Soon

T'hubster's eldest daughter fell off a ladder, cut her head open requiring 6 stitches and broke BOTH of her wrists.  Mo's Digital Pencil "Coffee" image and the sentiment from "Sick" seemed the perfect combination to send Emma our get well wishes especially seeing as the accident happened just before her birthday and we were unable to be with her to celebrate or to look after her.
I used Liquid Applique for the plaster casts and also for the bandage over the eye.  I added a little lint to the bandage to make it even more realistic.   My "stitches" are hand tied thread with Glitz Unchartered Waters paper beneath the stitching between the Spellbinders curved borders which you can buy here.
And here is the poorly bunny in person valiantly attempting to hold a glass of wine on her birthday.  Her doctor's stitches were much neater than mine and thankfully had been removed by the time of Em's birthday.
I am entering my card into the challenges at The Ribbon Girl for "Any Image" and Less is More for "thread", together with "Anything Goes" at Deep Ocean and Simon Says Stamp.

Poor Emma! Hope she makes a quick recovery. You've made a fab card, so creative and filled with gentle humour. I love the use of stitches to incorporate some thread - great take on our challenge at Less is More! Thanks for sharing with us :)
