Life Happens!

I made a get well card for a male friend who is in the hospital.  I used a couple of challenges for inspiration.

The Male Room - Make it Move

And Cardz 4 Guyz - Paper Piecing

Cardz 4 Guyz

Stamped the stripes onto the polka dot background and added some stamped stitches across the top of the stripes.  Stamped, colored and paper pieced the little ambulance, then cut it out.  Added the sentiment on the circle, matted with black and popped it up over the larger circle after adding the penny half under the background and then added the little ambulance with a pop dot onto the penny so that the ambulance can travel around the sentiment.  It needed a little something, so die cut the heartbeat like border and added it to the finished product.

Thanks for stopping by for a closer look!
