Stampin' Up! Strength & Hope creates beautiful Get Well Soon Cards

I have had a quiet-ish day at home today, which included some gardening (very weird for me), and some card making, I considered making cookies, but that seemed a little too domesticated, so I made another card....
This uses one of new favourite stamp sets from the Stampin' Up! Autumn/Winter mini catalogue out now! This stamp set is called Strength & Hope ($35.95 Wood, $28.95 Clear) and what I think is most awesome is, that $2 from the sale off each of these stamp sets is donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. With this card, I have used Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink. I have used inspiration from the Less is More challenge blog, which this week is to make a card with the elements being off-centre. I will probably end up making at least one more card for the challenge, so head on over, and check out the other entrants submissions!
Until next time, 
Happy Stamping!

This is a lovely card Jess.

I too have put a card on Less is More this week but I didnt realise that my card was so similar to one that you put on LIM a few weeks ago. I have put a link on my blog back to your card, with an explanation. I dont know if we both just had the same idea or if I saw your card and kept it in my mind.
