Get Well Card For a Sweet Girl

Here's the card I made this afternoon to match little Emily's crown. I'll ask again, please, that you say a little prayer for this sweet girl, she's been through a lot in the last couple of years and will be having surgery on Friday.


I told you it matched her zebra crown! LOL. How's that for bright? :) It's a 4-1/4" x 6" card and I used the 2nd butterfly at 3-1/2" from the Rock Princess cartridge and a 2" Get Well Soon from Beyond Birthdays. I blinged it out with some Stickles, zebra paper and iridescent ribbon. It's a big card, but that's because I accidentally stocked up on some 4-3/4" x 6-1/2" envelopes from Walmart. OOPS!

So, I wanted to use this post to ask for a little help!! For those of you who have been papercrafting for a while, what's the best tip or piece of advice you could give to someone new to the craft? I'll post your advice in my next blog post on Thursday to help out some of the newer crafters(eh hem, and myself).

I can't wait to hear what y'all have to say!! I am also so excited to announce that when I reach 200 followers, I'll be having my very first giveaway! Woot! How exciting!!! Ok, maybe I should lay off the exclamation points. ;)

Love the colors! A prayer is sent out for the little girl.

Craft advice: Stock upi on great Adhesive and bling! The ATG is great I also love Zip Dry it doesn't crinkel your paper and gives a strong permanent hold. Anything goes with creafting. Let your creatiity take flight!
