Dynamic Duos.......Get Well Wishes

Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the color challenge this week on the Dynamic Duos Blog.

I am still working on a card order so I used this challenge to make another get well card.

I have to say I love how this card turned out, I guess I shouldn't say that and I don't often but I do love this one even tho the stamp set and the DSP on it is retired.
The DSP is from last years, I think, fall Stampin Up pack called "Spice Cake" and the stamp is from the "Simply Soft" stamp set, it was a hostess set, I believe.
The DSP was perfect for this challenge, it has soft suede and pool party colors in it.

The base of the card is soft suede, I followed that with some pool party and then the DSP. I then added some more soft suede that I embossed with the square lattice EF. I tucked three flags under the edge of the embossed soft suede piece. 
The flower is stamped with black stazon and watercolored with my aqua painter and ink pads.
I then added a scrunchy pool part bow made with some seam binding ribbon and added a vintage button.
The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. 

Thanks for stopping by today and
