It’s Tuesday so you know what that means ...  Bugaboo Stamps has some new images that you are going to love!
 Although this is traditionally a Christmas image, I have used it on the Get Well card.

You can find all of this month’s new releases here!
Below is just one of the images available today in Bugaboo Stamps' Store

I coloured the image using Copics and a white gel pen :

 To make up my card i used the following from my stash:

white CS base
red CS card mat
plaid DP
digital sentiment on diecut
sewn on sequins and beads
fancy gem
satin ribbon bow
