Get Well Soon

I spent yesterday at a local 12 hour Charity Crop and Craft day.  What a perfect way to spend a Saturday - crafting for 12 hours with friends and raising money for Cancer Research at the same time.   I decided to spend the 12 hours card making, although with all the chatting and laughter I didn't finish even half the cards I'd planned!  Here is one of the cards I made, with a few challenges in mind.

The image is one of the stamps from the Woodware 'Take it Easy' set.  This stamp comes with a get well sentiment over the top, so I masked it off before stamping with Memento 'Tuxedo Black' as I wanted to add my own die cut sentiment.  The image was coloured with Promarkers.  I added a frame, die cut with a MFT 'Stitched Circle Scallop Frames' die.  The letters are MB 'Alphabet Soup' die cuts, cut from snippets of neapolitan coloured card to match the pills in the bottle.  I added a scalloped strip along the bottom, using a MB 'Stitched Country Border' die. 

I am joining in the following challenges:
Less is More Challenge #331 ~ Colour - Neapolitan
Cuttlebug Mania Challenge ~ Frame it
CASology Challenge - Week 251 ~ Medicine
Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #244 ~ Clean and Simple

Penny Black and More June Challenge ~ Anything Goes
