CTD203 - Under the Weather?

Well, I hope you're not "Under the Weather" I hope you're feeling fine.  Today is Wednesday and it's time for another Color Throwdown ChallengeBarbara is our hostess and she's chosen some bright happy colors for us along with a fun inspiration photo. 
Before I get to my card I wanted to extend a warm welcome to our newest Color Throwdown Team Member Denise Marzec.  Denise is a super talented lady and we're lucky to have her on our team!
For my card I needed a get well card for an order I was working on so I used this week's colors and the sketch from the Retro Sketch Challenge #22.  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Heart-2-Heart #6 along with the coordinating sun and cloud dies to create a little sunny sky.  I also flipped the sketch so that I could use the banner for part of my sentiment.
 Supplies: Heart-2-Heart #6 + dies, Hello Sunshine, Simple Stripes Impressions plate, Button, Bakers twine, Foam tape.
