CAS Mix Up - sending get well wishes


Today, playing in the February CAS Mix Up card challenge.  Our inspiration is to use Felt, Cork or Canvas plus stamping plus a choice.

My card includes cork, water color, die-cut, dry embossing, stamping.  I die-cut the detailed butterfly from cork.  The water color panel beneath was cut using a solid butterfly die.  The butterfly is mounted on a "quilted" round panel.  The quilting was achieved by using a striped cutting plate to dry emboss ... ran it through Big Shot twice ... the second time at a 90 degree angle.  A few gray-toned gems  and sentiment complete the card.

Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.
