Holly, what an awesome little project this was! I really liked making this card, however, I think I'll stick to the measurements next time!! It took me FOREVER to make! (I did stop often to play with my youngest daughter! The best part was having my daughter singing to me while I was making this! I also gave her some butterflies to play with!)
Last Sunday, I unplugged my laptop and brought it to my craft room, like I often do. I plugged it back in, turned it on and went about my own business. After about an hour or two, I went to use my computer and the screen was blue! I turned it off, turned it back on and it was a black screen explaining how I was missing my Windows file! I knew right there and then, my computer had given up on me! I was super bummed. This is the third time this has happened to me. I'm still not sure if I have lost everything yet!
So, I had no working computer in my house for the past week. Karen (my MIL) lent me her computer so I could finish up some side projects, but it just wasn't the same. I was able to play in two challenges last week, but unfortunately couldn't comment all of your cards in the gallery. I'm sorry for that!
Now I am back up and running, though! My DH took me out and purchased me a new computer!! I LOVE it!
I hope you like my card today! It isn't as big as it looks. I will not be sending this to anyone... This is going to sit on my fireplace in my living room!

Jenna, So sorry for the puter troubles. I can totally relate as I've been there twice! Ick. This creation is so completely beyond beautiful! I love these butterflies. It is really a work of art. I miss my girls being little and singing to me:) Enjoy them as it goes SO fast:)
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
