Inspired by Pinterest!

Although I've been adding to my Pinterest boards daily, it's been awhile since I actually sat down and made something that I'd seen there.  I get the idea that that might be a common phenomenon.  ;)  Since there's a "Pinterest Inspired" challenge going on at Cut it Up Challenges this week, it seemed like as good a time as any.

I took my inspiration from a card at Mariana Grigsby's Blog.  I don't post other people's pictures on my blogs, so you'll have to check out the link to see her original card.  She uses washi tape and a stamp, along with some rhinestones, to make a really pretty card.  I have the same sets of washi tape, which is why the card initially caught my eye, and I'm always looking for new ways to use it, so it seemed like time to give it a try. 

For my card, I used the shades of blue/purple washi tape set from Target.  I followed her instructions on how to layer the washi tape.  I wanted my card to be a "get well" card, so I stamped the sentiment from Joy's Life "Everyday Occasions." 

The butterfly is cut from Storybook.  I wanted something that was just a silhouette, and I liked this one.  I adhered it down and then drew the fly marks with a gel pen.  For a finishing touch, I decided to add my sparkle not with rhinestones, but with Stickles!
