Less Is More - Week 8

Well, I didn't get around to my second entry for last week's masculine challenge - honestly I just don't know what happens to the time these days!!!  Anyway, tt's now week 8 for the Less Is More girls and their fabulous challenge blog.  This week they have given us a sketch they want us to follow.  The sketch is pirmarily based on a DL card but you can change it if you want to so long as the sketch can still be seen clearly.
I went with a DL card, basically because if I try and change the shape of the card to match the sketch it always goes wrong! LOL
So here is the sketch to use:
And this is the card I made for it.
I have used a pale lilac DL card, added a piece of DP across the middle towards the bottom and instead of a circle I have added a butterfly using my shapeabilities. 
I added a "Thinking of You" sentiment at the top left (hopefully to balance it out???) - this is a Clarity Stamp that I have had for ages and use quite a bit. 
So that's it really, a simple CAS card following a sketch.
The card is for a friend whose little boy (3 months old) has to undergo an operation tomorrow to remove a tumour and one kidney - life can be crap at times can't it?)  Fingers crossed for everything to go OK!
