Purple Butterfly

I have a friend that is going through a very rough time with vertigo. So today I wanted to make a card for her to let her know I'm thinking about her. I decided to make a card that combined two card challenges. I used the card sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the color combo from Dynamic Duos.

I started with a white card then added layers of purple and white for the base. On the top white layer I added a strip of decorative purple paper, a purple striped strip and a cream colored rectangle on which I stamped the sentiment.

For the embellishment in the corner I added a die cut butterfly. Before adding the decorative paper butterfly I backed it with the same purple I used as a layer. I glued it at the body so that the wings could be lifted.
