If Nothing Ever Changed....

Handmade Card
This is a card that I made that was totally inspired by the paper.... I was so in the mood to create all day.... but every time I went to the craft table I would draw a blank.... then I came across this paper by Cosmo Cricut... it was a clearance paper pack at Hobby Lobby a while back.... the background paper begged for butterflies .... then the phrase was printed on a piece of the paper... so I had to do the butterflies.... no Cricut on this one.... just the Martha Stewart butterfly punches, brown ink and stitching. ~~Jeannie
