Hello All and Happy Friday!  I'm here sharing another card made for Great Impressions.

I am a huge fan of butterflies so when I saw this stamp I just had to get it.  This is called "Delicate Butterflies" (C413).  I stamped it all over the card with Versamark and then embossed it with Super Fine Black.  The stamp is rather small and I wanted to make sure you could see the definition.  I used some distress inks to make them flying in the sky then colored them with Copic markers.

The sentiment is part of a set called "Sweet Sentiments" (E791).  It includes "Thinking of You" and "Happy Birthday" along with the "Get Well".  I really like the font for this.  I die cut the circle of butterflies and then stamped in the center.  It looked a little off so I stamped some butterflies there too.  I added ribbon and flowers to finish it off.

I also want to remind you of the June Challenge at Great Impressions.  Our challenge this month is "Masculine" and here is the prize you can win.

I do hope to see you in the challenge this month!

A really pretty card Robin and all those Butterflies can't help but bring a smile to the recipients face.

You are so right about how crafting helps. I don't know what I would do without it some days, I might have do do it a bit lopsided with one gammy arm but the achievement when you finish is so worthwhile.

Many thanks for joining in our June challenge at Penny Black and More.
