This card is for today's SCS Sketch Challenge(SC246)! Thanks, Roxie for another great sketch!

I am using one of the newly release sets this month by ODBD called
Get Well. I love this flourished triple butterfly image. This set has this wonderful image, great get well sentiments, and scriptures.

I just wanted to say that I am so proud of myself. I have used dusty durango! WooHoo!!! I am still on the fence as to whether or not I like this color, but I am still proud that I used it. And, I do like this card. I combined dark chocolate, ivory, and dusty durango dpp as my color combo. I think this color combo and design could lend itself to a man card as well.

I do want to say that I do not own the dusty durango ink pad so I compromised and used really rust and rocked and rolled the dark chocolate. I added a SU texturz template for some texture. I use a paper piercing template and faux stitched. I cut out the little butterflies to create some added dimension. I sponged the edges using some really rust, dark chocolate, and ranger antique linen inks.
