Get Well Hugs

My second post for today.  First one was very manly, this one very feminine!

The sketch from EBTKS.  Not normally a type of sketch that I do - too symmetrical for me, although I like how graphic it is and I could have done a simple graphic card, but I decided to step out of my box.
I incorporated this color challenge by the Design Dollies:

 
Now my card is again not my normal style and believe it or not it took me forever (in my terms - about an hour or so - my cards usually go together in half hour or less!)  I don't really know why it took that long but probably because it is not my normal thing I just didn't know what I was doing! LOL   I used my new JustRite Stamp set (Plant a Little Love)   (which is available at Scrap-Mart) so this incorporates the JustRite challenge and the Pile it On challenge - flowers.  I also incorporated the Creative Card Crew and Paper Cutz Challenges - Get Well; the Little Red Wagon and The Pink Elephant challenges - Ribbon. Finally the Stamp Something challenge- spring.

Now I know that this is a hydrangea but I am so looking forward to the blooming of my lilacs that I just wanted to give a hint of lilac.  The main circle is on foam squares as is the flower.
  
Very proud of myself too, I used more scraps for this card (Heidi Swapp).  I have used so much old stuff lately but you would never know it if you saw my room!  I am desperately trying to make room for more!
