I have the pleasure of showing off the beautiful Butterfly Corner Set. This Set can also be matched up with the beautiful Single Butterfly & Butterfly Die.  The in and outside sentiment is from the With Heartfelt Sympathy Set. The Butterfly Corner and Butterfly image was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and then I sponged it with some SU Daffodil DelightPear Pizzazz and Poppy Parade. Next I added the Doily behind the sentiment and embellished the rest of my card with another Butterfly, Silver Pearls, Flowers and the Ribbon.



Now it's time to hop on over to my buddy Betty's Blog!

Thanks for hopping by today....see you soon!

                                                            Hugs, ~Silke~
