... of yellow

My little offering for today is for a CARDZ TV challenge.. the theme? black and white with a 'pop' of yellow, and since I have begun to 'pile it on' this card is also for the MY CRAFT SPOT challenge - 'get well soon/sympathy'.  Both these sites have some BEAUTIFUL stamps, I love sentiment stamps, I think they add a great touch to a card. ~ I want more stamps  ~  I need more stamps  ~  I must HAVE more stamps  ~ 
I am (its getting a bit of a habit!) using my Cricut to make the topper, this time using the 'PAPER LACE' cartridge.  This is the first time I've used this one, and I discovered some truly lovely cuts on this cartridge, very detailed and intricate.  Since I'm also going to enter the EXPLORING CRICUT challenge for this month, my two cuts are (p.57) <GetWell1> and (p.67) <GetWell2> (in yellow, I only used the word 'well')
The 'topper' is mounted onto a piece of white CS, which has been embossed using my CUTTLEBUG, and the 'snowflake2' folder.  I also added some ribbon, glitter and gems.

The yellow flowers are punched out using a MARTHA STEWART flower punch (this one also has some stamps stored in the top, but I decided not to use these and to simply shape the flowers before adhering them down.

The inside also has an embossed mat, this time using the all-in-one folder 'thank you'.
