Just Because Card ~ A Butterfly Hello

First thing to pop into my head when I first saw this sketch 
at Paper Smooches was soft, fluffy clouds.
I hand cut my cloud then embossed to add texture.
Next I stamped the butterflies on design paper and fussy cut them out.
I attached them with foam tape to add dimension.
To finish my card off I added the sentiment in the corner.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Butterflies and sentiment from the Flap Happy from Paper Smooches.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls folder from Provo Craft.
*Design paper from my scraps.

May your day always be filled with love.
