Get Well Tammy!!!

My friend had surgery last Monday and I wanted to make her a "get well" card and this is what I came up with.  This is the second card I've made recently with dandelions....what can I say, I  like them as they are whimsical!!!  I found a free SVG file of a dandelion which I really liked....you can find it here!  I wanted some leaves on  it, so I added them to the file and welded.  I wanted to have like a stone wall behind the dandelion so I made one and made it so that the dandelion inlays on front of it and to make the "stones" look more "stone like", I used some of my Viva Decor "Ice" Pearl Pen on them...love the look.  On the "tips" of the dandelions I used some of my homemade silver metallic paint (made from eyeshadow).  I cut three of the dandelions and glued them together...but did not glue the flower part as it gives it a more three dimensional look.  I used some "Clear" Wink of Stella on the leaves.  I added a butterfly and a dragonfly cut from some DCWV glitter paper, scored some lines on the top and bottom, added some tiny pearls to the butterfly and scattered some sequins to look like the pieces of the dandelion scattering in the breeze!


And here are a couple of close-ups.



I did the inside of the card as a "print and cut", using the LDT Wispy and Simply Glamorous fonts, some Wink of Stella on the rocks and added another butterfly to finish it off!


I hope you liked this design........please let me know and thanks for stopping by!!!

I Love this! I saw it in your Splitcoast gallery but wanted to come to your blog and read more. WOW! Thanks for including the link to the SVG and the leaves you added ROCK! Beautiful job in design and love that rock wall. The inside is just as incredible. Your friend can't help but be cheered up by this.....

Just gorgeous, as always, Pam! You blow my mind with all the materials you use; I have no idea what half of them are, so I guess I need to get out more to look around, huh? I'll never be able to match your style, though!
