Get Well

My birthday card pile is adding up quite nicely, and I'm scheduled to go to an Archiver's class this weekend to make even more birthday cards (so excited!) so I thought I should shift my focus to other kinds of cards I might want to stock up on.  Today I made a cheery Get Well card. 

This card is an A2 card.  I used a sketch from Die Cuttin' Divas.  The only real change I made to the sketch is that I smushed their oval into a circle, because it fit my diecut better.  I started with a kraft card, then put some blue paper, and then some pink.  I repeated the blue paper on the shadow of the circle (which was cut from George and Basic Shapes) and then used a cream paper for the circle itself (also from George).

 The rainbow was cut from Create a Critter 2.  I added the cloud, which was actually supposed to be a background for a phrase on Create a Critter 2, so I could stamp the sentiment from Pink by Design's "Scripted Year" stamp set.  Then I put two gems in the top corners and some We R Memory Keepers washi tape along the bottom as embellishments.

This card will be entered into the following challenges: 
Bitten by the Bug 2- Spring is in the air                                                                                   
Pink by Design- Rainbow
