Happy Get Well Note

Happy hot and sticky Monday!
Summer decided to come in with a bang I guess...I am not a fan of heat and humidity.  It's like all brain function ceases and I just melt...so I'm crossing my fingers and praying that this all passes very Very soon!

But, we are starting a new challenge today at Paper Makeup and this week we want to see Butterflies!!
I love adding butterflies to my cards.  They're so whimsical and elegant and just beautify everything!
So I've been having a little bit of fun with my stamps lately.  Really trying to stretch them outside of just their basic use.  There have been a few new releases lately with these really cute scribble circle flowers that I've just loved.  But I can't afford to buy every stamp set I love :)  So I decided to try and see if I could do something similar with what I have.

I had bought a fun stamp set from Simon Says called Lots of Dots, and it's just that...all kinds of circles.  I played with them a bit and found that I could stretch the outline circles just a little so that they weren't perfectly round!  Offset each one a little bit and ta-da!  Scribble flowers!  Sorry...I was really proud of myself for that :)

I stamped a few out in different shades of pink and layered some leaves underneath.  Then printed off and colored up some butterflies from the Color it Summer set from Paper Makeup and scattered them around.

The sweet sentiment is one that I just adore from Paper Makeup called Happy Get Well Note.  It's just so perfect, and a little more thought out than just Get Well.  I printed it off on the bottom of my card and then followed the week 3 sketch from Viva La Verve for the rest of the card.
