Birthday Card ~ Possibilities {2nd Post}

I LOVE to watch butterflies as they fly gracefully around.
They remind me that anything is possible if you try hard enough.
I teach in an elementary school and each year the kindergarten classes
are treated to the metamorphosis of the butterfly.
Watching their twinkling eyes and hearing their excited recounts
of the transformation process is magical.
Egg, caterpillar, pupa, butterfly. Magic.



*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Butterflies from the Flap Happy stamp set from Paper Smooches.
*Sentiment from my stash {unknown brand}
*Doily cut using the Dainty Doily die from Lifestyle Crafts.
*Circles cut using the Nesting circles die set from We R Memory Keepers.
*Hearts cut using a punch from Fiskars.
*Design paper from Recollections
*Danube Blue stamp pad from Memento.

May your day always be filled with love.
