Awhile ago, a good friend loaned me her "Butterfly Hope" stamp set by Papertrey Ink. While I had it, and stamped a variety of butterflies and put them aside for a time when I needed a quick card. That time came last month when my friend's daughter was in the hospital prior to her heart transplant.
I also had a stash of die cut "Horizontal Stripe Cover Plate" dies from a previous project. This one cut from Smoky Shadow was a nice contrast with the orange, yellow and black butterflies.
The sentiments in "The Skinny" fit perfectly between the die cut strips and are so versatile. Just a few black pearls from my long stockpiled Amuse pearls finished it off. I don't know what I'll do when I get to the end of those pearls! I have multiple sets in black and in red, and they are often just what I need.
