A clean and simple wish

Here is a card that I made earlier in the week for a close family member who has just had a very serious cancer operation. I deliberately kept it simple as it didn't strike me as being appropriate to send a card which was a case study in how clever I can be with the decorative elements - it really is just a wish from the heart.

Being as there are challenges out there I will enter this card for one or two, though it obviously wasn't the main focus in my mind when I made it.
