A quick Get Well card

Hi there , welcome to my room . Hope that you and yours are well . Really hot here in Adelaide today , and I am so happy that our unit is easy to keep cool . Great for crafting . Today's card is in my usual style , quick and simple .
We have a friend who has been in hospital for a few days and who,  for one reason or another,  can't have flowers in her room . This,  I thought , was the next best thing  to cheer her up.
The stamp [ Fragrant Letter from Penny Black]   is one I have had FOR EVER.
The sentiment is from Art Impressions. Both inked with Basic Brown.  Envelope  image on Whisper White ,  coloured with various markers and adhered with foam tape . The card and papers from Simply Scrappin set , Love Birds. I added black rhinestones for flower centres.
Fiskars Punch used for decorative edge.
Thanks for calling in .
Time for a cool drink...catch you again soon , cheers for now Shirley-Anne.
