Fussy and Fancy....Polka Dots..

Hi Susan here...

It is a new challenge over at Fussy and Fancy this week and the theme is called 'Polka Dots', you can find full details of the challenge and some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team there, please call across and join in with us all for some fun.

Now for my creation

Recently a friend of mine was really 'off colour' with a bad cold and I remembered seeing something like this on the internet a few months back and decided to make it for her to cheer her up!!

All the flowers are from Hobby Craft and the leaves have been made using a punch.
The ribbon and pearls are from our local market.
The ticket and sentiment are from Raindrop Echo Designs.
The backing papers are from my stash, I have used imitation stitching around the edges.

This is the inside, showing the pockets where I put some tissues, tea bags and cold treatment sachets. 

This gorgeous sentiment and frame is from Raindrop Echo Designs, I coloured around the edge of the frame with chalks to match my colour scheme.

This is my close-up of this gorgeous digi image from Meljens, I have used chalks to colour it. It was just what I wanted for this creation.....

Thank you so much for looking and for all your wonderful comments
Love and hugs
