A Homespun Affair Challenge

I love being challenged and this one was interesting!!! Since I needed to create a Get Well card, I went with the requested color scheme and it was so refreshing to work with. I guess the more cards you make, the more you get in a rut of using the same colors.
I started with the Everyday Pop Up cards (Cricut) but after a frustrating hour, I could NOT figure out how the Get Well Spoon phrase was supposed to pop up in the card!! UGH!! So, I cut it out and created a whole new center pop up card.
I used Spellbinders Label 17 die cuts for the back frames and 
DCWV  Cherry Limeade Stack. The colors look a bit off in the photo but they were right on!! I used a Granite glitter paper for the spoon so it looks like steel.

  3. This is lovely! I know what you mean about this cart. I have tried some of the pop ups too and didn't have good luck either. Sometimes when that happens it turns out better than we thought and I definitely think this is one of those times:)
