Heard you caught a bug?

Many people seem to be sick as, once again, there's a bug going 'round. I know this, because my husband caught it, too. He had strep throat and 'it got him real gooood'.
I thought it only appropriate, then, to celebrate this Hambo Wednesday with this bug card.

on the inside:

I just love how the sentiment starts out so innocently with: "Heard you caught a bug..." and then you get to the second part of it: "Since when have YOU been an entomologist?" Too funny, isn't it?

The bug (actually a Christmas image) was stamped twice. Once on glossy paper and once on vellum. Both were coloured with markers and cut out. Then, I adhered the glossy bug - without the wings - to the vellum wings and 3D mounted it on a white glossy oval paper.

The stamps:
Entomologist - 0730 (from the Fractured Funnies line)
Bah-Hum Bug - 1419 (using the bug only)

Both images are available at Hambo Stamps

This is great! I love what you did with the bug -- the vellum adds a great touch, and it's colored beautifully!
