My dear friend Kerry let me borrow her  "Greenhouse Garden" stamp set, that is not available in Australia.  It is such a gorgeous set, and I have been hanging on to it for weeks; I thought I'd better make something with it, before I give it back to Kerry tomorrow!

One type of card that I (thankfully) don't have much need for, but which I'd like to have in my stash 'just in case' is Get Well cards.  I have a couple of creations in the pipeline ... I'll share the Greenhouse Garden one with you today, and will post the other tomorrow.

The oranges that I've used in this card are Apricot Appeal (LOVE the softness of that colour), and the much bolder Pumpkin Pie.  To soften the solid background card, I have stamped it in Very Vanilla using the Sanded background stamp, then have sponged around the card edges with Very Vanilla ink.

Even though this beautiful stamp set is not in our current Stampin' Up! range, I wanted to share my card with you, because I really like it - hope you do too!
