Give A Hoot Butterfly

My cousin, who is like a sister to me, had surgery on Monday. I wanted to send her a card to let her know we were thinking about her and wishing her a speedy recovery. I love all of the animals in the "Give A Hoot" cartridge! I chose the butterflies because, well, I like butterflies. (Unlike my youngest daughter who is deathly afraid of them.......that's a story for a different day)

So I grabbed some paper, tried to match it up, cut out the butterflies with the help of my Gypsy (so I have no idea of the size) and put the card together. Of course I had to use pearls - my favorite bling. (I think I need to buy them by the case!)

I added some stickles to the butterflies antennas, inked the edges of the paper, stamped the solid cardstock with a florish stamp, added pearls and this is the finished project. I didn't want to add a sentiment onto the front of the card because I liked it plain. I wanted the attention on the butterflies. The inside say "wishing you a speedy recovery".


  1. So cute! I love the card and hope all is well.
