Get Well Gift and Card

One of the guys in my office has a 13 year old daughter that has been sick for over 3 months. They first thought it was mono, but now the doctor is saying it is some kind of infection due to dental work she had done. She now has to be on IV medication for the next 6 weeks and they may have to do a heart valve replacement due to damage to her heart. I feel so bad for the family. Here is the card I made her.. I hope she likes it!

Altered Gift Bag

My mom called and asked if I could do something to the gift bag that she got for a wedding shower. She couldn't find one that had a wedding theme... the bag needed to be extra large because she got them bath towels and kitchen towels. Once I saw the bag, I knew what I wanted to do.....I had purchased the wedding magnolia's for my friend's wedding and knew the stamp would be the perfect addition to the gift bag!
I can't believe how well the paper matched the bag and bow...the pink paper is from Gina K and the aqua paper
is from scrap paper I had on hand. I put crystal stickles on her dress and added a flower stamp with aqua ink to make the paper match the gift bag. You can't tell from the picture, but I used glossy accents to make her shoes look patent leather. I then added a three roses and a few little pearls for the finishing touch.
