The sentiment on this card is another piece I stamped off when I was with the members of our Yahoo group.  The actual stamp has a butterfly included, but I wanted to add some dimension to it so I didn't ink that part of the stamp.

Once I got home I put this card together.  I was in the mood to "make a statement" so I chose the bold yellow and black combination to go with the yellow butterfly. 

The card base was embossed using the Cuttlebug "D'Vine Swirls" folder.  I don't know that it shows but I did run the black layer through using a different Cuttlebug folder with raised dots (but not the Swiss Dots one because it has managed to disappear somewhere in my craft room).  The butterfly is from some that I purchased at Archiver's when our group visited there last year.

(I forgot to mention that the pearls were colored with a Copic marker to match the yellow card stock and butterfly.)
Thank you for stopping by!  Your comments mean a lot to me so tell me what you think.
