Get Well Card Using Graphic 45

Recently, I was asked to make a get well card for someone and to include butterflies.  I immediately thought of Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments line, and this is what I made.


Beginning with a white cardstock base, I layered two sheets of patterned paper on top.  I accented the second sheet with a string of pearls.  The QuicKutz doily edges were given an aged look with a bit of ink.  A decorative strip of paper was placed over the doily.  The Prima flowers were accented with Recollections rhinestones and a hemp bow.  The butterflies were fussy cut from the paper and accented with Stickles.  A sentiment was stamped onto the tag whose daisy centers were highlighted with Stickles, and tiny chipboard circles were placed in four corners.


It's a pretty day outside today.  I just finished pruning some bushes and weeding the flower bed.  After I finish ironing, I think I'll catch up on some reading.  I hope the week ahead is a wonderful one for you.  Thanks so much for stopping by and also for your sweet comments.  I appreciate it!
