Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 145 - Thank You & Phindy's Place Challenge #36

At long last I have made a card. My first card of 2011. The challenge at Cute Card Thursday and Phindy's Place was so appropriate. The Thursday after christmas my hubby who is fanatical about his bikes went cross country cycling with friends. Unfortunately I got the phone call I have always dreaded. It was from a paramedic telling me that hubby had fallen off his bike and they were taking him to hospital. The hospital he was taken to wasn't local (in fact it was 30 miles away). My mind went blank and I ended up running to a neighbours house who kindly jumped in their car and took me to him. He ended up in hospital for 3 nights with broken ribs!!! Anyway on to my card. I can't thank my lovely neighbours enough. I used a Papertrey stamp - Year of Flowers - Roses. I stamped the image 4 times onto Stampin Up Earth Elements paper, cut it out and decoupaged the rose, stamped the leaves onto dark green card, and used a Swiss Dots embossing folder for the pink background. The sentiment was also Stampin Up. I hope they like the card, but not a good start to a new year.
