Special card for Linda

A friend asked me to make a special card for her friend Linda.  Linda needs all of our prayers as she will be undergoing extensive treatment and a long recuperation.  I made the card 4.75x6.25.  The new dark teal cs is embossed with a Darice butterfly embossing folder.  The cs is white core so a bit of white was exposed, but I did sand it a little more.  The butterfly layer is placed under the strips of lace.  The SU image is stamped with teal, and edged with the same ink.  The sentiment is computer generated.  I know most of you are much more imaginative than me, but I made a discovery.  I wanted the sentiment to match the image, but of course the labels1 die is basically square.  I cut the piece with the smallest die, then traced the die at the top and bottom of the tag so I could fussy cut the top and bottom to match the image.  I used Petaloo flowers and Spellbinder Blooms 2 dies with shiny gems for embellishment.  I hope this will cheer Linda.

My favorite colour. I'm sure it will cheer the recipient. Good idea for shaping the tag too, I'll squirrel that away.

This is a really pretty card and I love the butterflies that are not only under neath on the embossed folder but also the butterfly image that is tucked under the ribbon. Great inspiration. Thankyoy for fluttering by my challenge. Hugs Mrs A.
