You are in our Thought and Prayers

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!!
Hi Everyone! If you have been a follower of my blog for a while you know that one of my blogger buddies is a huge inspiration to me. Her name is Lisa from A Mermaids Craft and she is so talented, creative and a true artist! You have to go check out her blog.... if you do not know who I am talking about~She will blow you away with her creativity!

Lisa was recently a Guest Designer over at Do More With Less and her card was absolutely gorgeous! She showcase one of her signature Spellbinders based card designs along with a fabulous tutorial. She is hosting a Spellbinders shaped card challenge that I had to go over and play along with. I also kept in mind while creating my card...... one of my favorite challenge blogs,
My Craft Spot
The challenge this week which is:
Get Well/Sympathy

The card base and base layer are Spellbinders 5 x 7 Elegant Labels Four. The next layer is a Grand Labels Four and then another Elegant Labels Four. The pattern paper is from Authentique-Delightful paper pack.
I followed with a accent doily piece cut at 4" from the Artist cartridge, then a Spellbinders Standard Circle which I embossed with the sizzix flower folder and then topped it off with My Craft Spot's scallop using the tiny doilies metal die set. 
The sentiment is stamped with My Craft Spot's With Deepest Sympathy stamp set. I distressed the edges and added some beautiful pearls around the outer edge for a pretty look.
The butterfly is cut at 1 1/2 from the Artist cartridge, then added a few pearls, some distressing and a dusting of glitter. Isn't this pretty?
I topped the card off with a pretty satin double bow and a beautiful tag using My Craft Spot's 
tiny tags metal die set and the tiny tags 2 stamp set tying it on with My Craft Spot's honeydew twine.
Thanks so much for visiting!
