Eucalyptus Leaf Hugs

I used the super pretty Eucalyptus Leaves dies from Simon Says Stamp's latest STAMPtember® release to make a get well card for a friend...
I did a little research on eucalyptus leaves, and found they can be used for all kinds of medicinal things. The oil should NOT be consumed as small amounts are toxic, but the oil inhaled and used topically, it can possibly relieve pain, improve colds/bronchial conditions, and the leaves made into tea are rich in antioxidants.  I thought this information made these leaves perfect for a get well card!  
I didn't have paper the color of eucalyptus leaves, so I went into my paint chips!!  I die cut the leaves from two shades of blue green chips.  I did not layer them, but gathered them together and tied them with a piece of burlap string.  I then embossed the two dies all over a card stock panel, and adhered the leaves to a die cut stitched rectangle.  I adhered it to the upper corner of the card, and added a layered "hug" sentiment from a new Simon set of dies, Healing Hugs, and a sentiment from the coordinating stamp set.  Here's a close up...
I hope you are all doing well in your parts of the world...on to more fun!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
