You Cured Yet? Sketch Challenge

This sketch is one by Maria Bell, I do many of her sketches. I have had to make a lot of Get Well cards lately so I went back to my set with the pig set again. For this one I used watercolor pencils and aqua painter.
Supplies needed:
Stamp set of choice
Watercolor Paper
Watercolor Pencils
Aqua Painter
Patterned Paper
Black, Bashful Blue and Very Vanilla card stock
Black Organdy Ribbon
Black Gel Pen
Black and Bashful Blue Ink Pads
Large and small oval punches
Cut main card stock (Bashful Blue) 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 fold in half for basic card. Cut another piece of Bashful Blue at 3 1/8 x 3 3/8.
Black is cut at 3 4/8 x 3 3/8 and one at 3 1/2 x 4.
Cut Watercolor Paper at 3 x 3 1/8, stamp image on Watercolor paper and color in with watercolor pencils and aqua painter. Set aside to dry.
With patterned paper cut at 3 7/8 x 3 3/8 Mount this to the black piece that measures 3 1/2 by 4. Add black organdy ribbon to this and put ribbon off to the left side. Mount to basic card.
With your oval punches punch out largest oval punch with black card stock. Then with smaller oval punch punch out the very vanilla and stamp. Add black gel pen dots around outer area of the very vanilla and mount to black. Add pop dots to back
Now mount your dried image piece to you bashful blue piece and then on to the remaining black piece. Add dots around outer edge with Black Gel Pen. Mount to card as shown in the sample or sketch. Then mount the little oval piece.
Your card is finished and ready to go in the mail.
I have had so many relatives lately that has had surgery or just not doing good at all. 2 had heart surgery, one had stints put in her legs. One had colon cancer and one was just put in a nursing home as she is not doing well at all. And one just had a pacemaker put in his kidney. Never heard of them doing that before.
Hope your having a good weekend, it is beautiful here today.
Angel hugs
