Cheery Lynn Guest Designer week two

Hi everyone!

I'm back with my second project for Cheery Lynn!  I needed something quick, as this came up a bit unexpectedly.  It is for my grandmother, a very special lady to me.  My grandfather passed away three days ago.  I don't have anything for a sympathy card (that is now on my list of things to get!), but I really wanted to let her know that she is in my thoughts, especially since I am unable to make it to the funeral.  She is quite elderly, so I was wanting something a bit elegant/pretty, and a bit on the vintage side as well.  Here is what I came up with:

I love my Cheery Lynn butterflies just as much as I love the flowers.  They are so delicate, and still can be shaped into a dimensional embellishment just as you would a flower.  It is also so much fun to play around with bits and pieces of different dies to create different looks.  The top border above the ribbon is a side I cut off from the Dutch Doily Rectangle Frame.  I've also used half of a Polynesian Sails Oval on the bottom half of the card.  Added a few other embellishments, and viola!  Done in under half an hour.

Dies used:
I'm off to drive Jordan to camp.  Wish us luck that she doesn't get homesick again this year.  She is so excited to go, but already nervous about it.

Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend!
