A little banged up

I usually make my cards as the occasion arises, personalizing them for the recipient.  Today I decided to make a card for a couple of challenges, even though I don't have a recipient in mind yet.  This card is for the Skipping Stones Design sketch challenge #51.  The theme is based on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #36  : a project having to do with being sick.  Technically, mine is for recovery of a physical injury, but since their design team featured a band-aid, I figured this fit in that category.


I cut the oval from Calligraphy Collection and ran it through the Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder.  The car is from Smiley Cards.  (My Pink Stamper cut out one of each of the base images and offers a downloadable file, which really helped in figuring out the layering from that cart, since there is no handbook.)  I decided to put googly eyes on the car because the ones from the cart cut too tiny to even work with.  I crumpled the fender on the card and inked it a little.  The sentiment inside will read: "I hear you're a little banged up."
