It's my SIL's birthday this month, so I wanted to make her an extra special card b/c she's been going through a rough time. What better thing is there to brighten up someone's day, but beautiful b/flies. I have a variety of them on this card.
The beautiful focal b/fly was given to my by my buddy, AudreyAnn. It's remarkable with the script and the hanging leaf and jewels. I couldn't wait to find an opportunity to use it. She and Benzi also diecut me some branches to which I adhered a variety of flowers and b/flies with purples and gold.
I LOVE this DP from K&C Company; but, unfortunately you can't see it very much with everything I added.
I popped up the framing and b/fly on dimensionals, used an ef for the side panel, added two gold hearts to send my love her way and a sentiment diecut with ribbon.
That's about it. I had fun making this with all the wonderful elements that were given to me by friends and ones I had in my stash.
Thanks for taking a look!

Wow! This is beautiful, Pamzi. I love all the colors and that awesome butterfly from Audrey. I can tell your paper is gorgeous even if most of it is covered. Pretty hearts, too, and it is sure to cheer up your sister-in-law.
Have a fabulous weekend. It is supposed to be in the low 70's and sunshine here for the next two days... can't wait. I'm taking a little trip out of town.

Be still my heart! Sis, this is so lovely. The branches look real - I really thought you had put some twigs from your yard on here (so would that be unusual for someone who puts real tylenol pills on her cards? I think not). This is gorgeous! Love the detail, the colors, the fun elements. This is a card that your SIL will cherish always! I hope she receives many blessings from it. I know you sent it with prayers and I added some of my own just now. Miss ya, love ya! Hugz!
