Mercy, a bruised toe!

A few days ago I went to visit a neighbour and managed to slip on her step, and land with all my considerable weight onto the tip of my right big toe - thought it was broken there for a while, but several xrays later, it's not but it is bruised and swollen and a bit difficult to walk on! However, I have survived - a woose but alive.
This photo was taken three days later.

In the meantime, I have made another card for another two Challenges - a sketch and a colour challenge. 

The sketch is from Lord Have Mercy but I missed the time frame, and other is from the colorthrowdown #100 Challenge.


                                   


I used SU card and SU Baroque Motifs for the swirl, and SU Baja Breeze ink to stamp that.  I also used black Memento ink for the sentiment. This is a Verve stamp - Love. Add one flower and a Prima flower centre, and the Cuttlebug to emboss the green in Quickutz - Diamonds and Dots, cut out the shape with a Tim Holtz Alterations - Movers and Shapers and add some ribbon and pearls. I outlined the blue card with some faux stitches in white gel pen, and put the whole lot on a blank beige commercial card. I also used the Baja breeze to sponge onto the edges of the shape.

Off to put the toe up!
