Flutterby Butterfly...

Afternoon all!

Hope you are having a nice day!

I am really getting into this creating because I want to, not because I have to, so today I made a little butterfly card that can be used for anything, like a 'just because' for someone.

I think I may give it to my friend as she has been really supportive to me over the past few weeks with the kids having their surgery and bringing me food supplies!!

Recipe: DCWV paper and cardstock, K & Co butterfly & flowers, wire from stash, Papermania brads.

I would also like to put this card into the following challenges:

  1. The Pink Elephant #56 - Green - Green background , flower & leaves
  2. Cute Card Thursday 102 - Green - green background, flower & leaves
  3. S2G Papercrafting - Green - green background, flower & leaves
