Feel Better Soon

Hi there. Today we have a brand new challenge for you at the Creative Belli Challenge Blog. Our challenge this time around is Gingham. Ok, so honestly...I saw the challenge, and said, I don't think I have anything in my stash to fit this! And since the idea behind the challenge is to use stuff in your stash, I was a little worried, that I might not be able to play this week. Well, I went digging in my ribbon drawer, and found this ribbon. Ok...tan gingham ribbon...what am I going to do with this.?????!!!! LOL. Well, after sitting at my craft table and staring for a few hours (well I guess it was only a few minutes...lol), it came to me. I had this adorable Millie Mouse stamp set from Inky Antics that I have never used, and this great new release Get Well Soon PP from Nikki Sivils that I won, and here is what I came up with.
Isn't it soooo cute????!!! I started by stamping the little mouse, and coloring her with watercolor crayons. Then I stamped the nurses hat, cut it out, and then cut a small slit at the top of her head to slide it on her. Then I cut just around her little tiny fingers with my execto knife. I did that, so she could hold the little band aid. The band aid is one of the die cuts from the PP collection. I layered the pieces of PP onto the white CS base, and then came the gingham ribbon. Next I layered the image square onto the PP. I just love the little images on this paper! Last, I used a sentiment from the stamp set on the corner of the card.
Well that is all from here! Now head on over to the Creative Belli Challenge Blog, and see what the other DT gals have created using something with gingham from their stash. Then play along!

This card is for the following challenge:
