Chasing the Bug Away With Rum

When I sit down to craft or create for an order I want the product to fit the personality of the individual who has requested it. This is not always possible and sometimes my desire to do so takes away from the originality of the final product. This last week I received a request to make some get well cards from someone who collects mason jars and loves the country life. Her only request was 
that the inside of the cards read:

My mind almost immediately went to cards that I had previously seen variations of that used a mason jar and referenced catching a bug. Being that I had the supplies on hand to create my own version of this the mason jar card I went with it, and the client loved it. 

Inkadinkado Mason Jars 60-31236

The sentiment "Heard you caught a bug" was sketched with the Silhouette Cameo using a font titled SimpleSketch. The lady bug is a file from the Silhouette Design Store titled Bee and Ladybug Sketch, design 43496. The outline of the bug was sketched with the Silhouette Camoe and then colored in by hand using a Spectrum Noir marker. The card front was cut using the Jaded Blossom Card Mat Dies. I also used my MISTI to double stamp the mason jar.The base color of the jar is VersaMagic Sea Breeze chalk ink and the final layer is with StazOn Dove Gray.
