Get Well Soon Card

I made this card for an aunt that recently had surgery. 

At a baby shower not too long ago she mentioned seeing 
my zebra butterfly photo in the local newspaper .
She said how pretty the butterfly photo must have been in real life,
she had never seen a butterfly like that either. 

I wanted to send her a print of it
and thought making it into a Get Well Soon card would be perfect.

All supplies used were from Stampin' Up! unless noted otherwise. 

The outside is just the print attached to the 5" x 7" 
Whisper White card front with photo mounts. 
I wanted to attach magnetic sheet to the back
of the photo in case she would like to stick it to up somewhere,
but the magnets I had were not large enough. 

The inside was created with Watercolor Crayons.
The first time I have ever used them - I sure need practice !

The clouds/sky were made by freehand cutting out a stencil 
from scrap paper and sponging Bashful Blue ink over it. 

The stamp images are from these sets:
Inspired By Nature
Garden Silhouettes
Stem Silhouettes

The butterfly die cut is from the Beautiful Wings die.
I colored it with Basic Black and Real Read markers
and mounted it with a dimensional.

The framed sentiment was created with the Labels Framelits die
and Bashful Blue card stock. 

I stamped Whisper White card stock with Wisteria Wonder ink and 
a stamp from the old set Versatile Verses. 

The green card stock is from an unknown manufacturer,
it is nearly identical to Green Galore and has a slight texture to it. 

Thanks for looking =)
