R-U-O-K? Friendly Concern Card, CAS

This is a straightforward, CAS card to get the message across
 just as quickly as possible.  It's the kind I would send when someone has been
strongly on my mind but she hasn't responded to social media or phone calls.
It's the kind I would send as a last contact
before showing up at her door with dinner and maybe a gift card.
I am not a fan of the whole "call me if you need anything."
To me, that's an excuse for action, a thinly veiled apology for not caring quite enough
to bother oneself more about her neighbor, her friend.
To me, if I have a hunch that a gal needs help, I'm going to find SOMETHING
I can do about it without trampling toes...at least as much as possible.

So this is a Shout-out card that says,
HEY--I'M CONCERNED ABOUT YOU, FRIEND.
LET ME KNOW WHAT TO DO OR I'M GONNA GUESS.


You can't see the sparkle-embossed question marks except very faintly
in the second photo, but they do add a slight sheen and texture.
The light pink has also ended up looking more orang-y in today's light, but it's' not.
:(
