A "Get Well" Card in Warm Summer Sun Colours

For this Get Well card I used some gorgeous warm sunny cardstock from the DCWV Citrus Stack. I cut 4 equal sections from the co-ordinating patterned card, I then used a 1 1/2" circle punch to create a cut out on two of the sections. I edged all of the sections with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink then adhered them to the card. I used a Marianne Creatables butterfly die to cut the butterfly which I then coloured using Promarkers in Gold and Pastel Yellow. I covered the butterfly with Diamond Stickles (which you unfortunately can barely see in the photos but it looks so pretty) then added some pearls to finish. I adhered the butterfly directly to the card within the cut out space then finished with the "Get Well" sentiment stamped with the Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink. Those warm summery colours are bound to make anyone feel better!
