Dandelion Wishes = get well.

Dandelions are one of the first flowers to appear in the spring - a bright splash of yellow against another wise colorless landscape.  Once finished blooming, the flower becomes a ball of fluff, each tuft of the fluff containing a seed for another plant.

I must admit I have a love/hate relationship with Dandelions.  I don't mind them along curbs, but not in my lawn please!

The dandelion In it's fluff state is actually very beautiful and paired against a colorful sky, makes a beautiful get well card

The Basic Black card stock base is layered with Whisper white card stock embossed at the left side with one of the Petal Pair Textured Impression  Folder (stems).

On a separate piece of Whisper White card stock, a center of area was taped off with masking tape, and using a brayer, the following colors were applied: Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody, Gorgeous Grape and Lovely Lipstick.

The single dandelion was embossed with black embossing powder on this colorful panel.

This panel I cut out, embossed the right end with the same embossing folder, matted it with Basic Black card stock and adhered it to the card front.

The sentiment, stamped with Black Memento, had some Dandelion fluff stamped around it before matting it with Basic black card stock and adhering it to the card front using dimensionals.  A gold metallic shape was added above the "wishes" and on the upper right card.
