Butterflies Take Flight

Linda hosted her annual Butterfly Card Swap in memory of the young son she and her family lost many years ago. I was delighted to be able to join her swap.

I decided to go with a neutral card with just a dash of color to add some pizzazz to it. I hope Linda likes it.






I can't wait to show you the inside. I did something a bit different than my usual inside... and I love it!



Isn't that fun?!?!

Your card is absolutely stunning! This is my first time to your blog, and I have to laugh at your title. I constantly remind my hubby that my crafting is cheaper than therapy! I love your card!
