"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul or brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."

I am not sure who originally designed this card, but the first time I made this card my friend, Gloria, showed us how in our local stamping adult ed class.  I decided it would be ideal for birthdays.

Thank you TyAnn for the use of your punch and to Gloria for sharing this card with me!

Card base is Always Artichoke (SU), both mats are black and the printed DP is SU.  The olive DP is from a pack of paper I bought years ago at my local Pamida store and sort of looks like a crackle design. I used the Labels Framelits dies (SU) for my layers and the Boho Blossom punch for flowers (not sure of the purple cardstock!).  For the butterflies, I first stamped with one of the flowers from the Mixed Bunch stamp set (SU) with embossing ink, then embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die(SU).  I stamped flowers on the center DP in black, but I'm not sure what stamp set they are from (sorry!).  The leaves from cut using a die from Sizzix.

BEAUTIFUL! Card Jen, don't you just love the new framelit dies from SU? I have them and use them all the time. Love what you did with the butterfly. I recently became a SU Demo just as a hobbyist. ~Suz
