Feeling Icky? Get well card

Hi there!

I wanted to make a card using the prompt from AAA cards.  I liked the window block pattern and immediately thought of using my new little bird stamps.  I could picture them peeking out from each of the windows.  Very cute.  I thought I was so clever thinking up that idea all by myself.   Anyway, I was just about to make my card this morning when I saw that someone else has beaten me to the idea!  And it looks fantastic!!  (Love your card, Deepti!)

So I had to have a little rethink and decided to use my monster stamps.  I paper pieced each monster and coloured in their eyes with a white marker.  I thought the red, dotted background looked a bit like chicken pox, so would fit in nicely with a get well card.

This was the prompt from AAA Cards:

and here is my interpretation...

I'm also entering this in The Friday Mashup!  The challenge this week is to use background stamps. 

Thanks for looking!
