A Butterfly Card ..............

Hi everyone, I was asked to make a card for an order for an Auntie called Grace who is turning 90 and loves butterflies so this is what I came up with. The lady I made it for was thrilled which was nice.

I have been a really bad blogger later, I have been full of a cold this week and not been sleeping very well. I must apologise to all my blogging buddies that have kindly left me comments and I have not got round to returning them. Your comments are always very much appreciated.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
