Get Well with Chicken Soup

Happy Wednesday Crafty Friends,
 Hope you are all having a fabulous week so far.  Today I would like to share with you all a card I made about 2 weeks ago but had not had a chance to post it. I made this card for my boyfriend who at the time had a terrible flu which turned into bronchitis.  Although he still has a bit of a cough, he is feeling much better and on the road to recovery!  Luckily, I did not get sick as it really makes my asthma so much worse and really complicates things for me.  Anyhow, I wanted to make him a card to cheer him up a bit.  Since we were having soooo much chicken soup at the time, I thought it might be cute to try and make a card with a bowl of chicken soup.  So this is what I came up with, hope you all like it :0)
