Friendship Card ~ Change

School's out for summer...
Well almost anyway.
Sadly one of my co-workers is moving to another school.
I was asked to create a card using butterflies and this sentiment.
I thought this floral watercolor design paper would make
a great background for the sweet butterflies.
Next I die cut then stamped the butterflies on coordinating design paper.
I added them and the sentiment with foam tape for dimension.
To finish off the card I stamped each page of the notepad with the smaller butterfly.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Butterflies from the Petals and Wings stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Butterflies cut using the Wings and Petals die from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment handwritten by me.
*Design paper from the Pastel Breeze paper pad from Colorbok.
*CTMH Green Chiffon stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
