There’s no grander place to leave your cares and worries behind than a beautiful garden! It’s the perfect place to lose yourself in a day dream as you’re surrounded by bountiful blooms playing host to a kaleidoscope of butterflies! What is it about butterflies that evoke so many feelings of joy, memories of loved ones gone before us, and the gentle reminder that the trials of life can transform us into something beautiful!

Card size: 6 X 7 closed.  Start with the black 6 X 6 foldout card and cut Butterfly decorative paper for each panel (inside and out, you can cut 2 at once for front and back just make sure paper is facing correct direction especially the back panel).   Glue paper panels to each corresponding card panel.  Cut borders from pink card stock to go on each side, front and back, matching curves.  Cut a 6” Fleur Border for the back panel and line it with decorative paper.  Cut a pocket for inside and a Festive Holiday also from pink card stock.
 Stamp and die cut, from white card stock, and then sponge color onto all the butterflies, Peony flowers, Rain Boots and Blossom flowers and leaves, and tiny Wildwood blossoms.  Place Peony blossoms in the Basic Shaping Mold to form and mist with water then run through cut and emboss machine.  Let dry.  Form tiny flowers and let dry.  After drying, pierce each peony blossom in the center and thread a wired or small stamen through one blossom at a time to form completed flowers. (Piercing the centers also helps to form the “bowl” shape for your flower).  The tiny flowers have Prills for the centers. The little round flowers from Rain Boots and Blossoms is covered with adhesive then sprinkled with the Cosmic Shimmer Glitter.
Sponge color on each butterfly and brush adhesive on the wings then glitter with Ultrafine Transparent.  Brush or sponge some adhesive onto flowers and glitter with Crystal Clear.  Set flowers and butterflies aside to dry completely.
Stamp words on front panel and inside back panel using Vibrant Fuchsia Archival Ink.  Make tages by cutting them out of decorative paper with the Luggage and Tag set.  Add ribbons to each tag.  Glue 2 sides of pocket to the inside of 3rd panel (from the left). Insert on of the tags.  Cut a thin border from the decorative paper and mat with pink card stock.  Glue the 2 short ends to inside of back panel (make sure to leave enough room for sentiment to show above tag) to form a pocket then insert tag.
Decorate panels with flowers and butterflies, (Make sure card is not too bulky to close by making sure that most of the 3-D flowers are above the panel in front of it.  Pop up butterfly wings with foam tape.

Thanks for visiting today!!

Romans 12: 2
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
I love this verse.  I renew my mind by reading and listening to the Word of God each day.  Staying in His Word help to keep me focused on Jesus, His Word is my compass. It helps me to walk in His path not the world's way.
Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Jesus said, 
 “I am the waythe truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6
