Caught a Bug?

Hi there, as I write this it is pouring rain and looks like an Autumnal day, not Summer!  Hopefully this card will brighten my friend’s day…

PDCC 145
Now this card was going to be a get well card.  As soon as my friend saw it she wanted it but she’s not sick lol.  However, at the early part of this week she was telling me how she keeps having to catch spiders that are taking up residence in her new home so I thought this would be a perfect card to send her and make her smile!! Now I much prefer the idea of being able to send her a card for that than having to wait for her to get poorly!!

The colours are from our Play Date Cafe colour palette for this week.
At first I thought uh-oh that’s going to be tricky but then when I started rummaging for papers I found this sheet from Bo Bunny and eventually a design came together.  The blocks in the top left corner inspired the square trio design and I added a pop of black to give it a bit of a lift.  The added pearl was my friend’s idea!

I really LOVED making this card, the image and word were so fun to colour in with my Copics and the whole card just makes me smile.  I want to make loads now in different colours, I can feel a little gift set coming on!

The stamps used are by Paper Smooches, Word Up and Healthy Vibes.  The little die cut frames are by PTI.
