Fields of coneflowers ("Black-Eyed Susans") make me think of my daughter Sue, and this card was made especially for her. The Monarch butterfly just happens to be one of my favorites. The butterfly was embossed onto vellum and painted with watercolor pens on the reverse side; then it was glued onto vanilla card stock to intensify the colors and mounted dimensionally onto the card.
