CAS Get Well Soon

Good morning! I have another version of the CAS card I recently posted. I made a couple of variations; mainly leaving a bit more space at the top for the sentiment. I think I am finally happy with how it turned out! I think the bright and cheery colors would make most anyone feel better!
The DP is from American Crafts and it came with the scalloped edge; at first I was going to trim it off, but then decided to just roll with it. The crystals are Swarovski "Tanzanite" and they are a really beautiful shade of lavender; they are not true to color in the photo though. The sentiment is SU!
Sentiment: SU! Sincere Salutations
Ink: SU! Night of Navy
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, American Crafts DP
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Tanzanite", The Ribbon Boutique Ribbon
Tips and Tricks:
The ribbon for this card came from a roll that had plastic wrapped around it; although the color is beautiful, the actual ribbon isn't very nice. It's very lightweight and the edges really ravel, making it a bit hard to work with. The sale purchase price was $1 for 15 yards, so it didn't break the bank. In the future though, I think I will stick to more familiar brands or ribbon that I can buy by the yard, so I can feel the quality and texture first.
Thanks for stopping by; I hope your day is super!

Love this CAS card. The scalloped edge adds a nice little detail, good choice to leave it on. Love those crystals, and the ribbon looks beautiful (I do know what you mean though about quality of ribbon).

Hope you have a very Happy Birthday!
