One of my husband's sister had neck and back surgery in April, 2010. I thought it would be nice to send her a little get well card. I found these really pretty silk butterflies at the Dollar Store, of all places, in their floral section. I snatched it up for my cardmaking stash, which by the way, had begun to multiply somewhat abundantly. I immediately knew these butterflies it would be even pretty with a little glitter glue on its wings to add sparkle. They also brought to mind some open stock paper from Joanns in my paper stash that I knew would coordinate very well with them.
I decided these were the items were what I would use to make Judy's card and brought them out to stare at them until my mojo went to work. I was really happy with the outcome of my butterfly card. As I looked at the finished product, I thought it would make a good Mother's Day or birthday card. I'll tuck that idea away for the future, especially if I'm tight on time, then I could just make another.
