Butterflys & Flowers

A colleague commissioned this card for a friend that has just been diagnosed with heart problems and is currently undergoing tests - hopefully this card will raise her spirits.

This photo doesn't show the cards true colours unfortunately as it's such a miserable rainy day outside today and  I've had to turn the lights on in my craft room - the backing paper is actually lilac and not blue!

Flowers, gems, pearls, lace, glitter glue and peel off corners are all from my stash
Paper - Doddlebug Design's baby girl kit - forget-me-not daisies 
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - dusty concord
Magnolia Doo Hickey Die - Heart Swirl Branch Die

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Bling It On - photo inspiration
Kenny K's Krafty Girlz - fabulous florals
2 Sisters - anything goes
Allsorts Challenge - things with wings
Phindy's Place - summer living
Crafty Purple Frog - things of beauty
Digi Doodle Shops Best - anything goes
Paper Crafting Journey - anything goes
Paper Play Challenge - blossoms and blooms
