Sending Hugs, Kisses, and Get Well Wishes - CTD #162

Are you ready for some Color Throwdown? Today's host is Tammy and she chose some sweet colors, inspired by MME Lost & Found Paris & Co. paper collection. 
Here's my card, using MFT's adorable new PI - Girl Doctor. Wouldn't she make anyone feel better?

My brown is showing up like black, but I promise it's Early Espresso. And I didn't have any Creamy Caramel so I substituted River Rock. I colored the little cutie with Copic markers and then cut her out, framing her with the First Class Friend Die-namics die cut. The sentiment was stamped on the new Oval Tab Die-namics die cut and tucked up under the edge of the frame. I also used the new Postage Stamp Edge Die-namics die for the horizontal element. Some seam binding, a button, some twine, and some stick pins finish it off.

Here's the inside with another sentiment and the sweet little doctor again.

OK, that’s it for me today. Oh, wait, maybe there is something else I wanted to tell you. Oh, yes, now I remember...we've added some AMAZING new talent to the CTD team. Starting today, Joan Ervin of Stamping With a Passion, Keva Brown of How Now Brown Kow, Lori Tecler of Inking Aloud, Lynn Put of The Queen's Scene, and Wanda Cullen of Cullen-ary Creations have all joined our team. We are so excited to have them creating with us and we know they will inspire you as they inspire us. Be sure to give them some love today and a big ol' Color Throwdown welcome!!
