Paper Crafts Gallery Idol - I need your vote!

Happy Monday! Today is a big day as voting for the next round of Paper Crafts Gallery Idol is now officially open.  We were given the theme of "Creativity Heals" and asked to come up with a card based on this theme.  I decided to create a get well card using some gorgeous papers from the Kioshi collection by Basic Grey.  One of the things I love most about this collection of papers is the nontraditional color scheme of soft pinks, blues, purples and yellows mixed in with such a strong neutral as black.  The papers are all so pretty without being your typical prints and florals.  And that is exactly what I wanted for my get well card - something that was soft and beautiful but with that extra punch of color that made you say "wow!"

 
I created the layered flower embellishment using my trusty scallop circle punches and some die cuts and stickers from the Kioshi collection.  And can I just say that I love the purple in this collection.  Purple is definitely not my typical "go to" color - I mean let's face it I have two boys and there is not a speck of purple to be seen in my house (hee hee!) - but paired with some yellow and blue with a punch of black?  It really makes a statement.


And here's a closer look at the cute little butterfly on my card.  It's actually a sticker that I popped up with some dimensional adhesive and used two tiny black buttons threaded with some yellow floss to create its body and antennae.


Okay so here is where I beg and plead for your help.  ;)  In order for me to move on to the next round of this amazing contest I need your votes.  In order to cast your vote for me you will need to visit the contest page HERE.  Once you are there you will need to follow these easy steps to register and vote:
