Got a cold? Phooey!

Would this cute pink and green card cheer you up if you were sick? Maybe bring a smile to your face? I have to admit that the bug image just cracks me up... so much so that I had to color 'em in hot pink and add a bit of glitteh! LOL!

Quick notes: I stamped the bug image three times, coloring with various shades of pink and green Copic markers. I added a bit of glitter to their antennas, their many feet and the spots on their backs. The sentiment is from a SU! set called Curvy Verses and says "If wishes could make you well... you'd be better already!". I added a bit of machine stitching, some pretty designer paper and finished with some silver brads and gingham ribbon.

For the inside I added a piece of white cardstock matted on Pink Pirouette with a strip of the same designer paper I used on the front of the card. I stitched the layers together and then adhered to the inside of the card. I don't do this very often bought thought the bright pink card base needed to be toned down a couple of degrees! Wouldn't want to blind the recipient! :)
