Lawn Fawn Get Well Soon card

A friend's mom who is a breast cancer survivor was in the hospital with chest pain last week and stayed for 2 days of tests. So far the doctors haven't found the source of her pain, so she's home now but still having pain in the middle of her chest and the matching spot on her back. We're praying for wisdom for the doctors to determine the cause and find a solution to the problem. Meanwhile, I thought I'd make her a get well soon card.
For this card, I started with a white 5x7 inch card blank. I used my Lawn Fawn "On the Mend" stamp set to make the background and the sentiment and little turtle on the front. I die cut some pink vellum with Spellbinders Marvelous Squares and then embossed it with a Cuttlebug XO embossing folder. For the image and sentiment, I stamped them onto white card and then die cut with another die from Spellbinders Marvelous Squares. I used a Copic marker for the little green accents on the turtle. I adhered the vellum piece with vellum tape and popped the image and sentiment up with foam squares after threading a ribbon through the sides.
For the small flower accents, I used Spellbinder dies and embossed the leaves after cutting them out. I used my Crop-A-Dile to set the flower eyelet in the middle of my paper flower. I adhered the leaves and flower with glue dots, and my card is now ready to personalize for Pam.
