Glittered get well card

It's a bit of a wet, dreary has been like this for a few weeks now. I am longing for the return of the dry, sunny days we were teased with earlier this spring!
DH is having a quiet day resting in his recliner as he has the dye injection test tomorrow to search for any artery blockage etc. Seems hard to believe it has been 3 months since his heart attack...what a nightmare it has been for him.
I am so behind in blogging that I thought I would sit today and create a few posts to set up on scheduled release dates. It is such a good feeling to finally be sitting down to do this. ..I have made a few cards lately but  just hadn't carved out the time to get them up on the blog.
I have missed all the friendly comments and feedback from viewers.  I am looking forward to regaining my routines and visiting all your blogs again too!!!
I made this simple little card for my Mom to give a family friend who is facing a serious heart surgery. I used  glue and glitter over the butterfly images and was pleased with the shimmer effect.

Here is the full view.  It is a very simple card so it really needed that shot of glitter!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

1. Emergency Crafters    Butterflies, birds or anything with wings.  I used the butterfly stamp on my card.
CAS with Kraft   My card was make with Kraft paper.
3.Stampin for the Weekend   Challenge 11 Bugs and Butterflies. My card has butterflies on the front.. 
4. Moving along with the times   Lets get Krafty.   My card is made from kraft paper.
5. Southern Girls Challenge  Things with wings.  My card has butterflies on the cover.
6. Stampavie and more  Something with wings.   My card has butterflies on the front.
7. Hooked on Craft Challenges
All that glitters. The butterflies on my card are glittered.
8. The Squirrel and the Fox     Make it sparkle. The butterflies on my card are sparkly with glitter.
9. Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenges   Challenge 15 coffee and cream.  My card has brown Kraft paper shaded with brown ink and the butterflies are stamped on cream cardstock shaded again with brown inks.

Hi! First, best wishes to DH as he undergoes his next test. It sounds like both of you have been through a few very trying months.

Second, your card for your friend is really lovely; nice touch of glitter!

Third, you asked on my blog how I made my bird in the circle. Oh, Scrappy, you are too kind! I'm not that talented! That part was a "cheater" like you talked about in your April 30th blog. It's an embellie from K&Company. I don't know how to add a link in here, but I'm going to try something and see if this works: link. No that didn't work. How about this:

Maybe you can cut and paste that into your browser.

If that doesn't work, Google "K&Company grand adhesions birds" and it should take you right to the product I used. Let me know if you don't get it. A link to my email is on my profile page.

Thanks. Hugs, Darnell

Wonderful card you made for your Mom to give away,the butterflies are gorgeous and the layout is fabulous!

I feel for both you and your hubby. My husband has heart trouble and now has a defibrillator plus pacemaker implanted and there have been years of medical appointments and ongoing tests. Not easy but beats the alternative!!

A simple card? It is stunning! I love the glitter on the butterflies and those pearls all around the oval give it a very classy look. Glad to have you back in blogland, you have been missed. Hope Mr's test go well and he is soon feeling better. Crafty hugs through cyberspace, Anne xx
