It's a Germy Get Well

This week's Cricut Cardz Challenge  (#35 for those keeping track) was to create a get well card using any cartridge we wanted.  The catch was that we could only use the colors blue, green, black and white. 

Well, anyone who knows me and/or follows my blog probably knows by now that I enjoy creating cards with "scenes" and lean towards the cutesy rather than the elegant/serious style.  So being limited to those colors I pondered the decision on what to do.  At this point all I knew was that I wanted to somehow create "germs" like you see in the comical advertisements and PSA's.  After some thinking and playing around this card is what I came up with.

The "germs"  are from Mini Monsters and were cut at 1 3/4" and were pop dotted to the card so as to appear like they were hovering above the bed. 

The bed and girl lying in it were created from Everyday Paper Dolls - cut at 3".  The blanket is a swatch of fabric that I tucked into the foot board and then adhered to the card using 3D glue dots to mimic the girl's body and then a line of glue at each edge.

I think that the next time I make this card though I'll need to make my "germs" just a wee bit smaller.
