Get Well Card for my Niece

Well, I was minding my own business at work yesterday and had to go to one of the hospital wards and what a shock I got when I got out of the lifts - to see five members of my family.  I thought that they must be there visiting someone until I noticed my 19 year old niece in a dressing gown.  She'd been taken poorly on Saturday night and in the end had the emergency removal of her appendix on Sunday.  All this on top of having a 4 month old baby to look after as well.  She's hopefully coming out of hospital tomorrow so I shall go and see her when I am back at work tomorrow morning but thought I'd make her a card today to cheer her up.  She's a girly-girl and likes her shopping so I used this cute Anya image and coloured her in with Copics/Promarkers and then added accents with Sakura Stardust clear pen.  The backing papers are all from my stash of bits-and-pieces to be used up - I'll let you into a secret - I'm not sure why I even kept the striped pieces as it is two small bits and therefore there's no piece under the stamped image/mount - maybe I must have known that the Anyone for Anya? Challenge this week had a sketch but then A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge had the topic of "spots and stripes" so I thought these tiny pieces of striped paper matched the spotted paper.  The card is finished off with a sentiment off the computer, gems and I have highlighted areas of the backing paper with the glittery Sakura Stardust clear pen.  Hopefully it will cheer my nice up and she'll be on the mend very soon.

This card also fits the following challenges:
