For Sonia

  I made a card for a friend that just had the fight of her life- and lost the battle...... It was a very quick diagnosis to passing time period for this wonderful lady.

  I found this stamp set and die at Stampaway at the Our Daily Bread Designs booth.  I cut out the center of the die and used a light purple/blue vellum behind the cut out. The image was stamped and embossed with clear EP.  I also had a die that did not cut out perfectly, so I trimmed off a piece of that and added it to the bottom. I die cut a butterfly out of a piece of yellow sparkly paper and the top is a purple die cut.  I added pearls and a bow and stopped, since this had to be mailed out.

Thanks for stopping by!
Shelly
