Caught A Bug?

Hi There

I wouldn't normally post twice in a day but I am at home after catching my Husband's bug! He has been coughing and sneezing for a week now. I was feeling pretty pleased with myself for not catching it but you guessed it...I have!

My card today was inspired by the 'Bug' challenge at CASology.
I had this idea in my head since I saw the challenge and today I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and off I went creating this:

Most of these stamps are from Paper Smooches. I stamped the tissue box and tissue on previously water coloured card. Fussy cut them out. I used my Visible Image snowflake stamp to represent my 'sneeze'!! The tissue box and tissue are both popped up on foam pads for dimension.

I deliberately used bright and cheerful colours as that is what I think we need when feeling a bit under the weather!!

Hope your day is going well x

I will enter this into:
