Feel better soon - CTS#78

Hi there!  Just a very quick post to share a card I made for CAS(E) the Sketch #78.

You wouldn't believe me if I told you how many attempts (and how much card stock) it took for me to create this card.  Everything I touched turned into a mess.  Oh...poor me.  Ha!  Enough whining, right???

Anyway, I used a technique I saw recently in a PTI Make It Monday video.  This is what I finally came up with!

Edited to add:  I originally linked to the wrong video; I've corrected it now.  Yikes.  Another mess-up!

After stamping my leaves, I used an aqua painter to blend the inks out from the images.  I finished the card with a bit of ink splattering and a piece of bakers twine.  That's about it!

Thanks for taking a look!
