Got Germs?

WOW, yesterday's Hop was fantastic, wasn't it? Super job and a big thanks to all.

Today I have a different kind of card to share...has flu season got you down? Know anyone who is under the weather and could use some cheering up? Our new stamp set, Monster Medical, is perfect for creating fun, light-hearted get well cards. Since I've had the creative 'bug' lately, I had some time to make this card for a friend.

I see these 3 guys from the set as little germs under a microscope and tried to convey that in this card.

Each little germ is popped up on dimensional dots and so is the ring of blue around is a cool effect, in real life. I tried to show it a bit better in this close up so hopefully you get the idea!

I also got to use my brand new Cuttlebug for this card...yes I said new. Believe it or not I have been putting off buying one ever since they came out! But Holly's tutorial from last month (Faux Mosaic Tile) pushed me over the edge and made me have to have one. Thanks loads, Holly! ;-)

Stamps: Monster Medical from AI
Paper: Blue, sage, white and peach from SU! and DP from Basic Grey
Ink: Black from Momento
Accessories: Dimensionals, cuttlebug with swirls folder and stitched grosgrain ribbon

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
