Hope and Butterflies

Hope and Butterflies

Happy Friday, everyone!  I woke up to about 4 inches of snow this morning…just before Spring Break begins.  So, I thought we could all use a little hope – Spring will get here, sooner or later.  Here’s what I made:

I started with a piece of white cardstock and embossed the word “Hope” in silver.  Then, I used various blue Distress Inks to make the background, finishing it with a few spritzes of water.  I used a decorative stitch around the edges, looped some thin white yarn around the cardstock, and adhered it to the card base.  The sparkly butterflies came from a sheet of specialty paper, were trimmed and popped onto foam squares.  The other butterflies were in my stash, as was the little flower button.

The inside is very simple:

And that’s it for today!  Have a great weekend and don’t worry…Spring will come eventually 🙂
