Apologies for the dodgy piccy - that time of year is rapidly approaching again, I have noticed the nights are starting to draw in, and the days have been dark : ( I will try and remember to take a better pic tomorrow.
I have made this card for a friend at work who has been really poorly with pneumonia, the poor old love is now at home with a zimmer frame (I can imagine the stick he is getting lol). Yes its a card for a fella, I hope he likes the sparkly blue butterfly - its about as masculine as I could so! lol.... I'm so glad to hear he is on the mend as it was touch and go for a while, and he is never ill.
I saw this sketch a few weeks ago on a challenge blog, and drew it on a post it and stuck it in my pro markers box as I knew I would use it, thank god for post its - they make my world go round! Sad but true...... lol.
Anyway to make this card I used some turquoise card from my stash, stamped a sentiment ran it through the big shot with the dotted cuttlebug folder, then cut a strip of DCWV sparkly yummy paper, created a boarder with a Mather Stewart border punch, and cut a butterfly with another of Marther Stewarts butterfly punches. Then added the sparkly gems to finnish.
I really enjoyed making this card, I have a number of thank you cards to get out for baby gifts, so I am thinking I will make some using this layout only in good old pink!
