Challenge 44 at Crafty Ann's

Hi there, don't you just love Fridays?? I do, the weekend is almost here and its time for a new challenge from Crafty Ann's and this time the theme is Get Well/Thinking of You/Just Because. 
For my DT card I've used Crafty Ann's beautiful 'Blossom Fan' and one of the yummy mottled stone bps (you can find both here)

I used the individual fan blades (although the image does include a fan too), coloured with promarkers and cut them out before edging with a gold krylon pen. I secured the fan with a jewelled brad and attached it with silicone glue. The sentiment is a stamp from Chocolate Baroque, 'Words of comfort and cheer' stamp sheet. Its stamped and embossed with gold ep cut out with nestie (labels 4), inked with spun sugar DI and matted on some pink card with a little butterfly charm attached. I added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Crafty Emma's (sprayed with a little angel mist cosmic shimmer spray), some lace (coloured with distress inks) from my stash and some faux pearls to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz: Icecream colours (raspberry ripple)
The Crafty Pad: bold and bright or soft pastels
My Mum's Craft Shop: something old, something new (new image, sentiment and cosmic shimmer spray, old lace)
Ooh la la: summer flowers
The Paper Shelter: Anything goes
The Shabby Tea Room: My favourite things (fans, flowers and lace)

Thanks for calling by today.
