A get well wish

A friend of mine has had some very bad health issues over the last couple of years, and has just had to have a very major operation.  I have made her a get well card, the design inspired by a sample I saw on the Joanna Sheen show on Create and Craft yesterday.

I have used card from my stash, and as she is a dog lover, chose a stamp that  I believe was from a freebie set given away with a magazine. (I am going to try to label my stamps so I can be more accurate, but I already have so many unknown!)

The decorative shapes are both nestabilities ( the base one is Label one, but the other oval shape I'm not sure of the name).

The swirls are a cuttlebug die, and the butterfly was stamped on acetate and highlighted with glitter.  The small bow came from the ribbons supplied with Nikky Hall's Christmas polkadoodles kit (available from Hobbycraft, and WH Smiths, as well as from the Polkadoodles website).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Polkadoodles week 41 challenge - ribbons and bows.
