Blinged Out Butterfly

Thanks for stopping at my blog! If you are interested, check out my sale page here. I’m cleaning out my Stamping Up sets.

This card started out pretty clean and simple from a card kit, and then I stated futzing. I added the DP and flourish bling. It's for my Grandma. Blue is one of her favorite colors and we both share a connection to butterflies (they remind us of my mom (her daughter)). Some GREAT inspiration out in blogland right now, I hope you get to play along too.
