The Flu

Yes, I managed to get the flu. Again. This is the second time in 3 years. Yes, I had my flu shot. I get one every year. Usually they get it right. Not the past two out of three years though. Just one of the perks of working in kindergarten and an elementary school in general. AKA Germ Central. I finally felt well enough today to make a card.

One of the images from the A-Muse Studio Floral Duet stamp set was used on this card. I inked the flower with Hero Arts Butter Bar Mid-Tone Shadow Ink on Neenah CS. The panel was die cut with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles, as was the black CS stitched frame around the floral panel. 

The sentiment is from MY Favorite Things Birthday Greetings and die cut with the same dies. I also added a black CS stitched frame around the sentiment panel. All of the pieces were adhered to a top folding card base. A sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh 6mm Lemon Drop sequins was added to finish off my card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges: 

     Muse Challenge #108 - this is the gorgeous inspiration card by Michelle :  

I was inspired by the colors that Michelle used.

     Cure For the Monday Blues Challenge #46 - Rise & Shine 

     Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

I hope everyone is well and has a great week. Meanwhile, I'm taking tomorrow off. I want to make sure I'm well before I go back to Germ Central. As always, thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from everyone, so commenting  and /or following my blog would make my day. Enjoy!
