WWC225 - Donna's "All About Occasions" Challenge

Hello there!  Today starts Watercooler Wednesday's "All About Occasions" Challenge and I've created a Get Well Scene card. Donna is our hostess and I hope you will stop by our website to see what the other artists have created.   This is such a fun prompt because there are dozens of occasions you can create a card for. 

Last year, I ordered one of Simon Says Stamp's "Mystery Sacks" and Clearly Besotted's "Lift Me Up" was one of the sets in the package.  I don't think I would have purchased this set, but I've had a lot of fun playing with it. So far I've made a birthday card, baby shower card and this Get Well card.  

Handmade card with MFT's "Scottie" Scottish Terrier dog stamp.

You can mix and match hot air balloons and baskets so I went with the duck balloon and puppy basket. I thought it would be fun to have a friend on the ground so I added the Scottie from MFT's Lucky Dog set.  I colored and die-cut the pup and then adhered him to the bottom with foam tape so he would have dimension.
  • I stamped my little scene on an A2 panel and colored with Copic Markers. 
  • I cut some masks because I wanted to add a "cloud and ground" background with Tumbled Glass (Tim Holtz) and Sand Dunes (Altenew) Die Ink.  I used my new Picket Fences Life Changing Brushes.  
  • Finally I die cut with a stitched rectangular die.
I am entering this card in:

Update:  I was very pleased to see that my card received the "Sweet Sprinkles Award" at Pile It On Challenge.
