Mod Dots and Butterflies

Hello and Happy Saturday, All! 

It is a sunny but cold day here in St Louis-good for staying inside!  The chores are calling me, but I found some time to stamp and create a card for the week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  It has been a while since I have played the blog challenges, so it took some getting "back into the swing of things"! 
Here is this week's sketch-
And here is my take on the sketch-

I went with a bright and bold design to cheer up a friend who has been home bound due to illness.  I started with one of my favorite designer papers from the Patio Party pack, then punched 1/2 " circles using Pool Party, Razzleberry, Island Indigo and River Rock cs.  I adhered the circles to the white circles on the dp using dimensionals.  I stamped the butterflies and fussy cut them out. 
The dotted panel is mounted on Whisper White and a Razzleberry cs border was added.  The sentiment was stamped using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and a square punch was used to create the banner. 
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
