Butterflies Take Flight Get Well Card

I have a friend getting ready to undergo surgery, so I made this card to send her and am also playing along with the Unity Stamp Co Be Inspired Challenge.  I've chosen the color challenge but you can also do the sketch or layout challenge.

I opted to watercolor the sentiment and build around that.  This sentiment is from the 9/13 Kit of the Month, titled "Happiness has no limit" and the watercolored leaves are from that kit as well.  This was colored on Strathmore Bristol #140 watercolor paper using my Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  I painted the frame edge with Folkart Paint and added liquid pearls in Platinum Pearl.

Those fun butterflies taking flight?  May Arts Ribbon, including the string butterfly that's embellished with a large enamel dot.   Also, the sentiment was stamped with Memento London Fog ink and then traced over with a gray Tombow pen to enhance, and finished off with clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.

I'm also linking up to these challenges:
