To Someone Special

Today I'm sharing a calendar page - love the fabulous artwork and colours.   
I am also playing along with two blog challenges...
I have managed to use all the 'Q' elements on my card
...  AND  ...  
My card is celebrating life and so  my card features a butterfly - here in this world for a short time but I do love to see them fluttering about the garden.
Also from me a very big congrats for this incredible achievement - CHEERS LADIES!!

I love to try construction/folded cards with a difference and so when I saw this petal fold card I was right onto it.... details on the Butterfly challenge blog.  Cut my card from 8" x 8" magenta card and then found some lovely floral PP to add to the front semi-circles... cut using my circle dies. Then to decorate the front I die cut a butterfly from shiny silver card and a layer from pink, and added some magenta gems. From the PP scraps I cut a couple piece to fit on the inside then stamped the butterfly sentiment and silver embossed on the pink card, I decorated it with the punchout bits from the die cut butterfly and attached the panel with thin foam sheet.  I decided it needed a little sentiment on the from so stamped that on a scrap of the pink card and added an extra gem.

Thanks for stopping by my blog --  have a Happy Day
