Heartfelt Wishes!

Hi Everyone,

My scrapping supplies and I have been reunited and it has been a happy reunion! lol I have been given so much inspiration from all of the blogs I have been visiting that I couldn't wait to get home to create!  Today I made a card with lots of butterflies because I am very fond of them.  The reason for this is that, before my mother had passed away of cancer she told me that she would be as close to me as the nearest butterfly.  I am so amazed at how my life without her here has been blessed with many butterflies. So in honour of my Mom, I made this card.

I am entering this card in the Outlawz Sketch Challenge. I used DCWV papers called Mariposa. The sentiment is by Close to my Heart and I embossed it in black. The butterfly is a stamp and punch combo by Purple Cow Designs and then I added some stickles. I coloured my ribbon and butterfly embellishment with my copics to match and used my EK Success border punch for the border behind the ribbon. I added some stickles to the border but the picture doesn't show it well.  The sentiment has been raised for some dimension.

This card is for all of you out there that have come by and joined my blog!  Hope you like it!  Thanks for popping in!
