Dandelion Wishes, Botanical Butterfly, Get Well Card

WOW, talk about a simple, quick and pretty card! 

When I bought the "Botanical Butterfly" Designer Series Paper (DSP), I thought the paper I used here today was so busy and I wondered if I would even use it.  On the back there's a white background with tiny black dots. I was okay with it then because I figured I would use that side for sure.  And now after making this card, I'm torn!!! LOL  From one extreme to the other!

I did find this card on Pinterest and you can see the original here.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock.  And the focal piece is Whisper White cut 3-3/4" x 5".  

I cut the DSP at 2" x 3-3/4".  I cut a strip of the gingham DSP from the same pack. I didn't mreasure it but I made sure it was 4 squares wide and 3-3/4" long.  I taped those two pieces of DSP to the focal piece.

I lined up the words, centering them on the open Whisper White panel.  They are from the "Dandelion Wishes" set. I stamped them using black Memento ink.

I punched out a butterfly from the "Botanical Butterfly" DSP using the "Butterfly Duet" punch.  I set the butterfly in place using a Dimensional.  I took a black fine point pen and added the dashed lines.  And for the final touch I added 3 of the "Iridescent Sequins" from the assortment pack.  And that was it. 

This was a very fun card to make and now I can get it sent off to a friend who had surgery.  I'm late in getting the card out but to think about it in a different light, she is still recovering and probably not getting any cards now!!!  Always try to look on the positive side!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
