Get Well, Lydia!

Hello everyone. I made this card last week for my moms good friend, Lydia. She had a severe stroke. She is only 60 years old, she was in a coma and couldn't control the bleeding in her head. So they had to remove part of the back of her brain. It is seriously a miracle, she woke up and CAN move and talk. She loves ladybugs, so I HAD to make her a card using this darling Tilda holding a ladybug! I hope this card will bring a smile to her face!

I used the sketch from Just Magnolia's challenge this week. By the lovely Mina! It's such a great sketch, I hope you can join us over at Just Magnolia this week!
