My Minds Eye Card Challenge "Live Each Day"

One of my very favourite paper companies is “My Minds Eye”, and this month they have a wonderful challenge on for either a scrap booking layout, or a card.  I really loved the sketch of the card, but was mostly inspired by the fact I have a dear friend in hospital at the moment, healing (magically I might add) from heart surgery....
The papers I used are from the Lost & Found Two Collection – in the 6X6 paper pad, called “Blush” – seriously is soooo beautiful!!  If you don't know the paper collection, please do check it out - you'll fall in love!!!

As I am a Design Team member for Cheery Lynn Designs, I just had to use their wonderful dies in my project. The large flower was created using the XMC-5 Scalloped Window Stackers, just scrunched the circles up after spraying heavily with Glimmer Mist – added a pearl brad and there is a simple and very pretty flower. Of course I had to use my favourite border B136 Anastasia, along with B122 Ribbon Eyelet Border. The leaves under the flower are from the SF-1 Stacker Flower #1 Leaf. 

All in all, with these two amazingly fantastic products (My Minds Eye and Cheery Lynn Designs) some glimmer mist, and pearl bling/brads, my card came to life!! 
I’m also entering my card into these challenges:
