If nothing ever changed...

Hi Friends!

Happy Sunday to you!  The sun is shining with blue skies here in NW Ohio...yeah!  It's 52 degrees with slight breeze.  Not too bad for an early April day.  Signs of spring are beginning and it's just around the corner.  I cannot wait to see my tulips bloom!:-)

Today I want to share with you a card I made for my sister's birthday.  I'm entering this card over at Seize the Birthday.  The theme this week is to use buttons or gems.  My sis loves butterflies, purple and bling.  So, I think this card would fit her perfectly.  The card is self-explanatory, so I won't bore you with the details.  But, I will tell you that I colored the butterfly with copics and used an elegant die from MFT.  Gems, of course, to finish off the card.

Ok, friends, that's all for now.  I hope you are having a great day!



Paper:  PTI, MFT
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy-large butterfly and sentiment
               Inkadinkadoo-small butterfly
Ink:  Memento-Tuxedo Black
