Feel Better

Last week I needed a get well card. I don't send many of those kind of cards but I decided that I should at least have one on hand in case the need arises again. So that was the impetus for today's card.

The image is called Water Can from Limited Runs. I colored the image with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers and die cut it with Spellbinder's Labels 35. I added the sentiment from MFT Essential Sentiments. I traced the Labels 35 die on purple card stock to get the background piece. The plaid background is a scrap from my scrap box. I punched the butterfly border from a Martha Stewart punch and then added three pink pearls to each butterfly to form the body. The flowers are some leftovers out of my embellishment box, as is the extra butterfly. I used Wink of Stella on the water can flowers to add some shimmer. I used the leftover butterflies from the border punch to decorate the envelope and the inside of the card.
I am entering these challenges:
Well, that's it for me today. It's been a busy one. I have to go shred a roast that I have in the crock pot for tomorrow's dinner. Tomorrow morning is my favorite time at Head Start. Looking forward to seeing the twins. Have a super "hump day!"
