Feel Better Soon - CAS

A stamp and die set that I've had for a while immediately came to mind when I saw the sketch for this challenge.

The images were stamped on Spectrum Noir paper, colored with markers and die cut. A panel of white cardstock was cut in half with a line to mimic a medical monitoring heartbeat line. This was adhered on a panel of black cardstock. The three "germs" were popped up with Dimensionals and arranged similar to the challenge sketch. The sentiment was stamped directly to the card front. The inside was lined with a panel of white cardstock and decorated with an image and another sentiment, "Feel better soon." As an afterthought, the images were touched up with clear Wink of Stella.

The Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge #306 provided the design layout.

This has also been submitted to Happy Little Stampers "Anything Goes with Dies" Challenge for June 2016.
