get well butterflies

 Happy St Patrick's day to anyone who celebrates. 

My card today is a get well card for a gent. I know butterflies aren't normally a guy thing but I decided these pretty little brown ones would be acceptable by the male gender.

The die is from Memory Box and called fairyland butterflies and I did originally cut it from yellow card. I attached to a white base card and I filled in the recesses with different glitters working dark to light colours. 

I decided I didn't like the yellow so I used the negative from the die cut as a mask and coloured the butterfly outlines with a brown promarker after the glitter had dried.

I wanted to make the card a little different after seeing a similar card on outside the box blog so drew a line across the card top to bottom midway across the card and then fussy cut around the butterflies on one side of the line and removed the white card on that half of the card also.  

I finished the card with some hand drawn faux stitching around the front and inside of the card and added a get well sentiment by the dark room both with the same brown promarker I used to colour the butterflies.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

You can't get any more nature inspired (I'm here from Try it on Tuesday) than gorgeous butterflies, whether for a man or woman. I'm sure he will be inspired to feel better soon when he sees this lovely card. I was impressed that the butterflies seem to be jumping off the card.
