Heavenly Flight

Good morning! Couldn't sleep last night cause I watched a movie that I thought was gonna be action suspense and it was really graphic, so I had to do something to take my mind off of it and what better way to refocus than to stamp?

I made this card in honor of my mom. You see, today would have been her seventy fourth birthday. She passed away nearly two years ago and when she did, she sent us a sign that she was alright and for us not to worry about her. She sent us butterflies! Lots and lots of butterflies!

I wanted to make a butterfly as beautiful as my mom so after stamping the image and coloring it, I covered it with glossy accents and a little dazzling diamonds on the tips of the wings. After I let it dry, I went back and added more DD over the glittered areas. Oh my, does this ever sparkle and shine. Mom would be proud. The background to the center piece was made with my Cricut and Storybook cart. The papers I used are from MME.

Well, I think I can go to bed now. I'm really sleepy!

Hope you enjoyed the card and it inspires you to be creative! It's really the best therapy in the world!

Have a great day! TTFN

Hugs, Becky
