Get Well Card for Sister-in-Law. . .

One of my husband's sister had neck and back surgery in April, 2010.  I thought it would be nice to send her a little get well card.  I found these really pretty silk butterflies at the Dollar Store, of all places, in their floral section.  I snatched it up for my cardmaking stash, which by the way, had begun to multiply somewhat abundantly.  I immediately knew these butterflies it would be even pretty with a little glitter glue on its wings to add sparkle.  They also brought to mind some open stock paper from Joanns in my paper stash that I knew would coordinate very well with them.  

I decided these were the items were what I would use to make Judy's card and brought them out to stare at them until my mojo went to work.  I was really happy with the outcome of my butterfly card.  As I looked at the finished product, I thought it would make a good Mother's Day or birthday card.  I'll tuck that idea away for the future, especially if I'm tight on time, then I could just make another.

Ingredients:  Bazzill cardstocks: white/ navy.  JoAnns: open-stock patterned paper.  BoBunny BoDot paper.   Zutter Corner Rounder, Martha Stewart Scallop Eyelet punch. BoBunny Sheer Dot ribbon, Michaels: Dimension butterfly.  Stickles Irresdescent Glitter glue (wings). Computer sentiment/ verse.
