Birdbrain Get Well Soon Card

I just love playing in the I {heart} Sketches with a tWist challenge over at the From the Heart Stamps blog. It's the only weekly challenge I play in where I am guaranteed a prize every week just for playing! Faith Skrdla gives $1 in store credit just for entering! I can't tell you how many great digi sets I've gotten with the store credits from this challenge, but this Get Well Birdbrain set is one of them. Isn't he adorable?!
To make this card, I started by embossing a 5X7 inch white card base with a spotted Cuttlebug folder. Then I used a little Close to My Heart Crystal Blue ink to distress it a bit. I used the same color on the sentiment banner.
For my digi, I imported him to my Silhouette Design Studio software and did a trace so I could make him into a print and cut file. Then I sized him up and sized up the sentiment from the same set as well, added a banner cut file to the sentiment and printed and cut everything out. I also stretched and colored in a Bandaid cut file so it would match the sketch and printed and cut those out. I distressed them with the same Crystal Blue I used on the sentiment banner and the card base.
I colored the digi with Copic and MEXPY markers. The die cut in the center of the card is by Taylored Expressions. I glue taped it down, used foam tape on my digi and glue taped the other paper elements. The blue dew drops were adhered with glue dots.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
