A teacup and a recipe

Thursday again, and it's C.R.A.F.T. Challenge day :)  This week it's all about a following a recipe.  I always procrastinate with recipe challenges, but it's also a good feeling when it all comes together!  So... the recipe is:
~ one tag
~ two circles
~ three squares or rectangles (I used rectangles)

My card is for a dear friend who is currently bed-ridden following an accident, and I'm hoping it brings a smile to her face:

The image is from our generous sponsor, Louby Loo at Digital Delights - I printed it on Kraft cardstock and coloured with watercolour pencils. I also used: paper offcuts from Bella, Basic Grey 'Origins' and Dream Street 'Tea for Two', Prima flower, American Crafts button, October Afternoon alpha sticker, DMC embroidery thread and Stazon ink.

I'm submitting my card at:
# Secret Crafter ~ Something from around the house
# Creative Inspirations ~ Stitching
# Kaboodle Doodles ~ Food and drink
