Caught a Bug?

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! And I hope your summer isn't spoiled by one of those summer colds or flu. But just in's a card to hopefully make you feel better. 

I started by die cutting the long bg piece then placing the arrows in my Misti. I first stamped them on a plastic sheet so I could see where they'd be, then placed the white piece in the Misti & lined up where to stamp them, a bunch of times. I did it this way because it made it easy to restamp some of them when the solid arrows weren't dark enough, Then I colored them all in. I really wanted a cute car image (hint, hint! BIG HINT!) but didn't have one so I made one out of circle die cuts. After playing around w/ the sizes for a while, I ended up w/ this.  I cut out the window part to add the blue behind it then die cut more circles for the wheels.
I added some narrow black strips around the layers & drew in the little puffs of smoke. 

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used for all the arrows.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
