Get Well, Leona

My second post today:

To the mother of one of my very best (BEST) friends.  Her mother just had a quadruple bypass last weekend and I wanted to make a feminine, soft card for her and one of the challenges gave me an idea, so I'm also entering this in a challenge too.  Leona seems to be doing well - so glad she finally went to the doctor for chest pains.
I would love to receive this, but you can't keep everything.  I hope Leona will like this - I think she will.  I'll be able to drop it by tomorrow.

The music sheet is a piece of paper from the packaging from a Tim Holtz embossing folder (set of two folders in one package).  I rubbed the surface with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, attached it to the card, found this wonderful bow in a drawer, a tag and looked for one of my favorite digital Hero Arts ladies and made this quick card.  If it's not casual enough, I'll understand.  For the clean and simple things in life, take a chance and enter the current challenge and emboss your heart away.

Arlene - wait...what? I CAN'T keep everything?!? You mean I have to start actually giving all these cards I make to someone else? Uh oh...

Anyway, this card is so wonderful, and I'm certain your friend's mother will be thrilled to receive it! Thank you so much for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
