Just Saying Hello

My mojo has been a bit off recently, so I decided to stick to using elements that appealed to me and do you know what for the first time in ages I pulled a card together without even thinking about it! I've made this card for a friend who I don't get see anywhere near enough who is having a rough time of things at the moment. Hopefully she'll realise that although I'm not physically with her, that my thoughts are very much focused on her.

I used my trusty nesties to create the card base and  associated layers from Bazzil card and My Minds Eye So Sophie. The sentiment is part of set from Hero Arts. I've stamped it in Sepia Versafine and then cut round the image and finished it with a dusting of Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The butterflies have been punched using a Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch , the ferns have beencut using a Little Claire's Fern Die and the flowers have been die cut using the Sizzix 3D Flower.
