PS - Healthy Vibes

  It's been a while since I've used a Paper Smooches stamp. And it's not because I've suddenly developed a dislike for them. I think they're just as adorable and as quirky as ever. But for some reason, I kept feeling drawn to other stamps over the past few months.

I had a friend who fell ill recently, and I wanted to make a card for her. So, I pulled out my teeny (compared to other stamps, anyway) collection of get-well stamps and found Paper Smooches' First Aid Kit stamp.  I thought it would be perfect for a cheery get-well card.

I stamped and colored the ambulance with my Copics, using the classic white and red palette. I liked the combination of white and red, so I thought I'd echo it in the rest of the card. I used the Borders 1 die to cut a white stitched rectangle, and put some dimension in the card with foam squares.

The rest of the card is really simple. I used a light blue paper to create a border, so the front panel wouldn't blend in with the card base. And I scattered a few enamel dots for fun.

Since the challenge for PS - Sparks this week is Anything Goes, I'm going to go ahead and enter there.
