CASology Challenge #251 - Medicine

Hi everyone ~ Thanks to all who made suggestions about my 'smashed' foil die cuts! In the end, I bought new plates, ran the die through closer to the edge of the plate and added a piece of copy paper underneath to serve as a shim...it worked much better! Also, using my old Grand Calibur didn't help at all.

I'm sure it's no surprise that I'm playing along with one of my favorite challenges again this week...CASology, and the cue card is 'Medicine'!


I thought it would be fun to take out my MFT Band-Aid dies and this sweet little Lawn Fawn bird and create my card. My apologies for the poor photo, we have had overcast skies for the past few days ~


Color me Nancy Nurse, but I always put a little antibiotic on a wound before I apply a Band-Aid, so I hope this fits with the cue card. The wonky stitched border was also intentional for the theme :) Before I matted the white panel, I added glossy accents to the birds' beak and clear EP to make the sentiment shine.

Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,
