Beautiful Butterflies

Hi friends,

This card makes me happy for several reasons.  One of my all time favorite stamp sets from Clear Dollar Stamps is called Beautiful Butterflies and I was thrilled when Lori just released dies (Bold Butterflies)to match this set as well as another butterfly set as an addition.  I used one of the images from the old set for this card, but it is so cool now that there is no need to hand cut!


The sentiment I used says, "if nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies".  

Until next time.

-Katie

Hi Katie!

Love the card - love the sentiment! Butterflies are always so lovely on a card! I am happy to see you are creating! :<)

I mailed out a package to you today - put a few miniatures in that I thought the boys might enjoy and some for you that helped me to stay strong.

You take care. Wishing you a good weekend with your family! You are in my prayers.

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Look at that ribbon! I could never pull off that treatment. But my favorite part is the birdcage. You don't notice it right away because the butterfly takes the spotlight, but then it is there. Just perfect!
