The Butterfly

Just like the butterfly, I too will awaken in my own time.  ~Deborah Chaskin

Hi All!  I know I said I'd be back with some Christmas cards but I had one last card that wasn't holiday themed that needed to be delivered today.  This was a special request for someone's younger sister who is getting ready to graduate from cosmetology school.  She mentioned that she reminds her sister of this quote all the time so she wanted there to be a butterfly as part of the image.  I had a TON of fun looking around some different stamp companies and am probably not as embarrassed as I should be to disclose that many other stamps were purchased during the making of this card, lol :)  I ended up using this gorgeous stamp called Come Softly by Ching Chou Kuik that I got as a digi from Sweet Pea Stamps and it was soooo much fun to color up with my Copics!  For the card I really just wanted something soft and pretty that would let the image shine.  And as a big sister myself I'm just glad that it gets to be a part of a really special moment between two sisters :)  Thanks so much for stopping by to have a look- I hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far!
