Butterfly Encounters!

Hi there,

I've been drawn to butterflies all week as yesterday would of been my mother's birthday.  She was always fascinated by the beauty and free spirit of the butterfly.  It didn't surprise me in the least bit when she wanted us to know that she would always be as close as the nearest butterfly.  As I have posted earlier, my life has been blessed with so many butterflies since she left us to be with our heavenly father, that I can't help but still feel her love!  Here's the card I made in my mom's memory.

I used DCWV papers called Mariposa. The sentiment is a Close to my Heart stamp that I embossed.  I used a SU border punch on the brown cardstock and Sizzix adorning corner dies surrounding the sentiment.  The peach glitter paper was dry embossed with a CB butterfly folder to give it dimension.  I fussy cut the butterflies from the designer papers to embellish the card. A brown organza  ribbon and bow to tie it all together.  I entered this card in Outlawz Paper a la Mode Challenge - Dreaming of Spring and Flutter By Wednesday Challenge # 191.

For me, Love is not like a butterfly, it is the butterfly!  Love you mom! Thanks for sharing her memory with me!
