Butterflies....

My wonderful grandmother collected butterflies.  Anything that had a butterfly on it she would enjoy as a gift. That made it easy to shop for her.  This involved REAL butterflies, too.  She had glass cases with butterflies mounted inside--this one particular tray she had mesmorized me with how beautiful they are, and when she passed away I asked to have that tray as a memory of her.  My kids were HORRIFIED when they saw it.  We all see beauty in different things (as I not think about how those butterflies were sacrificed for decoration...) GAH!!!

Ok...ok...this blog post is going downhill fast....lets get to why I'm talking about butterflies! Eva Dobilas is having a Butterfly Blog Linky Party today (and I'm fashionably late to the party HAHA!)

Here is my creation for her linky party...

I used Stampin' Up's Beautiful Wings Embosslit to make my kaleidoscope of butterflies
Cardstock used: SU! Craft, Ruby Red, Thoroughly Modern DSP
Stamps: SU! En Francais, Flight of the Butterfly

Thanks for stopping by! Check out Eva's other participants...like my friend Lydia's! I LOVE HER CARD!
