Sending Warm Healing Wishes

I made the following card for a friend and fellow golfer who had breast cancer surgery the day after Christmas.

I like to keep encouragement cards simple, without a lot of embellishments.  To make this card, I started by perusing my Pinterest boards and picked out a couple of inspiration cards that I had recently pinned.  Then I searched through some patterned paper pads and found some really pretty, but subtle peachy-pink paper on a light gray background.  It matched Papertrey's Light Stone card stock so I went with that.  For my stamps I knew I wanted to use Paptertrey's Healing Touch Sentiments and the butterfly from their Love Lives Here set.  With that, I made my card.  I am very happy with how it turned out.  What do you think?

Here is the inside:
