Blessings



This is my card for our every other month swap for an awesome group of ladies on SCS--the SOTC--Sisters of the Traveling Cards!  Judy is our hostess for February and she posted the following:You may have noticed in my posting the other day that I have chosen the word "Blessings" as my focus for 2016. Because I consider each one of you a blessing in my life and in the spirit of that word I would like you to create a card with the theme of "Counting my Blessings". This can be a "Thank You" card or one of "Encouragement" or "Praise". As an option I would love for you to incorporate a butterfly on your card. I love butterflies for their beauty and for their symbolism. Here are some examples:
Symbolic Butterfly Meanings
• Time                • Soul                   • Grace                • Growth
• Elegance          • Expansion           • Lightness          • Surrender
• Transition        • Expression           • Celebration       • Resurrection
• Vulnerability
I look forward to seeing your creations!



I have a few Stampin' Up Butterfly Stamp sets as well as matching dies and punches.  I also took out some Stampin' Up oldies from my collection.....  Everyday Enchantment DSP and Peach Stitch Poly Ribbon.




I hope Judy and the others in our sisterhood like my card!
