The flowers are also from Petaloo and the leafy branches were punched out with a Sizzix die. For the centers of the flowers, I took some pale green/beige brads from my stash and dotted them with a paint marker. I really liked how they looked with a few polka dots on them. The pink gems were some I had in my stash and added just the right touch of "bling." The butterfly is one from a K&Co. set that my grandson gave me for my birthday. He's only 6 and picked out some crafting supplies for me all by himself. You have great taste, Max!
To make the base card, I folded some heavy cardstock and then used a Lifestyle Crafts scalloped square die to cut the shape. I had to run just half of the card through my Cuttlebug, reposition the die, and then run the other half through to get just the size I needed. The mat on the front of the card is from a DCWV matstack called "The Sweet Matstack." I also used a Lifestyle Crafts scalloped oval die for the sentiment.
I hope you liked my little bird/butterfly card. I am sending this to a young woman who is married to a soldier serving in Afghanistan. I hope it lets her know she is not alone as she waits and worries.
