Watermelon Girl Get Well Wishes

Wheeee - This is my brand-new blog!  I still don't have any of my badges added but I'll figure out how to do everything soon enough.  This is all very new to me but it's a lot of fun! 
This is my first blog post, and it's about a get-well card I made for  my 12-year-old niece who is still in the hospital.  This time I chose a pre-coloured freebie digi that I got from Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps, and I added the cute “Kitty with Bow” digi that I won from Inky Impressions by Nicole.  I coloured it with pencils and then fussy-cut and popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment is a freebie from Desert Diva.  Other supplies used were:  cardstock (Recollections), die cuts (Nellie’s Multi Frames Circles, Spellbinders Nestabilities Eyelet Circles), embossing folder (Cuttlebug Spots and Dots), coloured pencils (Faber Castell), ribbon (Michaels), gems (Dollarama).  I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
