Flowers and butterflies!

Spring is definitely in the air even if it is only the air in my craft room! Another easel card, this time for a Nun and when I came across the challenge this week at Stamping Sisters in Christ I found their quote was just perfect for the thank you card I had to make. The family sending this card had lost their brother and this particular Nun had held them all together!
Image - qvc stamps (I think)
Papers - qvc kit
Medium - distress inks, glitter
Embellishments - butterflies, embossing folder, ribbon, fancycut scissors.
I am entering this into 3 challenges:
1. Stamping Sisters in Christ - make the broken look beautiful ( cut my paper at various places to give a mosaic look
2. Quixotic Challenge - followed their great sketch
3. Flutter By Wednesday - something with wings.
