This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 415 - More Old Muse; Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 418 - Circles; Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 209 - Featured CAS Player (simplybeautifu) which is just what her gallery is full of; and Monday's MOJO MONDAY'S SKETCH CHALLENGE # 282.
I finally found enough energy to make it upstairs to stamp today, I am on sick day 2 from work for the 1st time in over 3 years and ready for this crudd to be gone.
I chose to CASE this LONG STEM SILHOUETTE from simplybeautifuls gallery and hope I did it justice but if not keep in mind I am still full of Nyquil that stuffy, sneezy, coughing, wheezing, get out of your craft room cold medicine. LOL.
I used a French Script background stamp from Stampedous stamped in more mustard with the Nestie in place then stamped the silhouette image in midnight muse on top of it. I used some midnight muse ribbon and old olive cs then popped up my sentiment from Because I care stamped in midnight muse and matted on midnight muse. My focal panel, sentiment panel and care base are vanilla cs. I cut the base & focal panel with Large Circle Nesties cutting the base just above the top circle so it would hold together. I cut the matt for the focal panel using GRand Nesties Scalloped circles and the matt for the sentiment with SU Scallop circle punch.
Hope you like it.

Wow, we should all be so talented while sick! This turned out beautifully, Neva. I hope things turn around today and you begin to feel better. I guess one of your patients shared some of their germs with you.

Aww, Neva...I'm so sorry you feel punky. Those colds can really drag you down. However, it didn't keep you from creating this gorgeous card, my friend! I love the script stamped in the mustard and the bird image in blue.
