Day 26: For My Perfect Friend Card

I've been working on a custom card order this week for a special customer at Jacobsen's Books. He needed some 5x7 cards for his friend in tones of blue and green, so here's one of the cards I worked up for him.  
I started with the Midpoint sketch (pg. 77) from CTMH's sketch book Wishes. Since I usually work in the standard A2 size, 5x7 was a stretch for me. I have to admit, it was fun to have more space to fill! I chose Crystal Blue and Sweet Leaf for my colors. I embossed the Crystal Blue CS with the dot embossing folder. The doily background is a 4x6 Project My Life card I trimmed down and stitched to the card front. I added a strip of washi tape and a scalloped border.   
I added two butterfly from the Brushed WOTG. A bit of clear glitter gel and some brown sparkles finished off the butterflies. I used foam tape to pop up the butterfly wings after I rolled them over the handle of my piercing tool. I'm linking this up to the Heart 2 Heart Favorite Sketch Challenge.
