Butterfly Cancer Poem

A quick and easy card to share. As you may know (from my last post), my mom is battling cancer. Unfortunately my family is not alone and most people know someone battling this disease. I was excited to find this stamp at Cornish Heritage Farms. I've made several cards by request for friends. This one is for my mom. It's not a Monarch, but still a butterfly. The card was inspired by 3 challenges (see the Ins and Outs for details).
