Take Flight

A new challenge mood board at
Double D Challenges starts today.
How could it get any easier with the theme of 
and the beautiful mood board below

I have to admit that most of the design of this card I cased from Pinterest.
The card can be found on this blog HERE .
You should take a visit as she has the most beautiful and amazing creations....
a VERY talented lady.
when I saw the butterfly and the sentiment, I knew I had to case it
as I had the same set.

This card was made for a dear friend of mine's daughter
that graduated  from college with a bachelors degree.

I changed it up a bit to make it 'my own' by adding a panel of black linen
paper for a more layered look,
used a different flower with a green stem instead of black
and cut from white linen paper a stitched rectangle to place my flower and butterfly on.
I wish I had taken a picture of the inside as it is just as pretty!
The stamp set is from Technique Tuesday and the flower is
a newer die (to me) from Poppystamps Ragged Daisy.

Take a peek at the Double D and see all the wonderful
creations from the Design Teams, I am telling you it will amaze you!!

I absolutely adore the beautiful simplicity of your card, Diane! I've been loving that flower die, and your butterfly is exquisite. We drove through a Monarch migration on our vacation and I hate to tell you how many of them ended up on our windshield and grill. All the other cars, too. It made me feel sick to my stomach with dismay.
