Get Well Soon

Today, I made a card for a young man in our neighborhood.  He was assaulted recently and just made it home from the hospital.  He helps hubs out occasionally. We have known him for several years, and he is a good kid, not so much a kid now (20).  So I needed convalescent card and a masculine one as well!

In June I had promised to make him a throw blanket with his favorite NFL team fleece in time for football season. Since I just finished it a week ago, I decided it was a good time to give it to him and maybe cheer him a little -- along with a cute but definitely masculine card to let him know we are thinking of him and wishing him a speedy recovery.

Fortunately two challenges have themes that can easily be maculinized (is that a word?).  I used the theme from Addicted to CAS - Chevron, and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches-197.

I chose masculine colors and I think it turned out quite well.

                                   

Supplies: MFT Chevrons, scraps color card, Paper Smooches Get Well Soon stamp set, Copics, Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Banner Duo.
