Feel better soon - butterfly

okay here is yet another get well card! This time I followed this sketch from Feeling Sketchy and I also dug out a set of stamps that I haven't used for a while from Penny Black 'to you' and I used the gorgeous butterfly and flower from this set for the Scrapbook Boutique 'add a butterfly' challenge ...
here is my card ... I think in hindsight I should have distressed the edges of the paper ... but it was too late as I had stuck down all the paper ... so I have kept to my usual 'clean lines' :)
here is a close up ...
 
the orange lacy strip running down is a border punch which I trimmed down my card to a suitable width and then punched one long edge and then the other to make it lacey!
materials used - white cardstock; DCWV 'spring fling' cardstock and matstock papers; Penny Black 'to you' stamps, AnnaBelle Stamps 'dotted flowers' stamps (title); Staz On jet black, Versa Color vanilla inks; Crayola pencils; Cream satin trim; Carl corner punch; Fiskars lacy border punch; Sizzix large oval die; Ranger white opal liquid pearls; Kaisercraft pearls.
Thanks for looking.
