B-day card for Charlotte at WCCH Rehab

Today I made up a card for one of the nurses at the cardio rehab where I go.  I've been taking in my cards to show the girls and she asked if I sold them.  Then she ordered one for a friend of hers.  The only instructions she gave me were it had to have butterflies and daisies and be an easel card.

Sometimes the more leeway I have, the more difficult the project.  I started with butterflies.  I had this gorgeous paper from Stampin' Up! Sweet Pea stack.  Then I decided on Tilda with Daisy from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection.

Tilda was colored with Copic Sketch markers.  The butterfly was punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The ribbon is from my stash.  The sentiment is from an SU set and stamped on Nestabilities Labels Twenty.

The sentiment was one I found on the internet some time ago.  The carnations are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the daisies from WalMart's floral department and another butterfly punched with MS a punch.

Here is a full open view of the card.
I really like the way this one turned out and it only took me 3 or 4 hours to get it done.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting.  Until next time -
