Feel better soon card!

Happy first day of spring!!!!
well as winter turns into spring in Washington state 
it feels like the infamous yucky cold come knocking on our door!
right now every one i know has a cold, cough or the flu!
soooooo I am trying my hardest to stay away so i don't get it 
but i want them to know i still care an love them!
sooooo with that being said i decided to make 
a few get well soon cards!
i got the idea for this card by watching you tube 
the channel i seen the flowers on is: vadeler
she made the prettiest card!

the card is a standard A-2 card
the designer paper i used is from hot off the press
the solid paper is from the dcwv line the chateau lavender
and the punches i used are from Martha Stewart
the boarder punch is called the arch boarder punch 
the butterfly punch is called 3-1 Classic Butterfly Punch
the sentiment is from hot off the press stamp of the month club!
soooo using my cricut and gypsy 

i made these cute little tulips!
 the cartridges i use are:
for the tulip flower i used - mothers day bouquet
for the tulip stem i used - walk in my garden
these are the cuts i used

to get the tulip shape i just trimmed off two of the petals 

then you just fold the bottom petal up wards and tack down with 
a foam dot to have the 3D look!
Then i used my pebbles glitter chalks to edge it !
to attach it to the stem simply snip off the tulip tops of the die cut 
and adhere it down with some wet glue i used glossy accents 
but any glue will work!
 to get the look on the card i just layered up three of the stems 
and then i cut apart another for the leaves and 
added the leaves on top of the it to give it a 
bouquet look!
then for the little pot!
 i drew out a pot and pot rim on thin chipboard 
an cut it out to make my own little 
 then i traced it on some light blue card stock and cut it out!
then i used my pebbles glitter chalks to edge it!
I glue the rim down to the top and placed it on the card 
with some foam dots!
and then I hot glued down a organza bow!
then just punched a few small butterfly's in lavender and placed them around the flowers
and a large one on the flower pot! 
Thanks for Looking 
and i wish you all the flowers spring can bring!!!
hugs Kimmie
