Wishing You Well

Happy Friday!!!  It's Jeanne today with a card that is great for multiple occasions - birthday, retirement, new job, even get well. This wishing well die is the perfect image for all of those.
Just changing the sentiment to any one of a number of "wish" sentiments changes the card instantly.  And it is gender neutral - I love having cards on hand that I can give to my male or female friends!
I started by cutting all the pieces from white card stock.  I used a combination of Distress Oxide inks and Copic markers to color them.  I used the Copics on the small flowers as I find that easier than using a sponge dauber and ink.
I assembled the well on a silicone mat.
 Next I chose the paper for the background, frame and sentiment.  The various shades of green in this patterned paper really sets off the wishing well.  I cut it to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.  I also cut a white panel 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches, a dark green frame using the largest of the Stitched Wide Rectangle Frame dies and a light green sentiment panel using the tag shape from the Fancy Pocket Plus dies.
The white panel is glued behind the frame with the wishing well adhered to the panel.  I wrapped linen thread around this framed piece several times before gluing the panel to the patterned paper.
This was then put on a white card A2 base. I added the sentiment using foam dots for dimension and some small floral trinkets I had in my stash.
I hope you enjoyed my card today.  The Wishing Well die is part of the new Magical Garden release and is on sale for a limited time.  Stop by the online store and see the other great dies that are part of this beautiful release!
