Thinking of you

This is another get well soon card for my Aunt this time who is due to have an operation next week. I don't normally do more 'art' images (usually stick to cutsie ones) but I got this last year from Digidoodle shop and thought I would give it a go. I actually had fun colouring it- required more concerntration than normal! I use Promarkers, although I can see that it might be better with distress inks or watercolours. I have tried to keep the layout simple and clean and have used no designer papers- just a bit of embossing in the background using my Cuttlebug.I will enter this into this weeks CES challenge (no designer papers) and Digidoodle shop (anything goes).
