Be Yourself

I'm so happy to share a card with you that I created for 
my post on the 
Sometimes I create a card that I'm really pleased with..
this is one of them and I hope you like it as well.

I absolutely LOVE how the Linnie Blooms die cut pieces 

can be manipulated into just about any shape you want.
I turned a butterfly into a flower with just a few crinkles 
and folds.
Using some heidi swapp color shine I sprayed the butterfly canvas die cut.
After the spray dried I just used a colored pencil to shade 
the edges a bit, added a beautiful sentiment and there you have it.

Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to share my card today.  
Be sure to peek in on the Linnie Blooms blog to say hello.  
I'm also joining the crew over at 

'til next time…
