A Special Card for a Special Someone

I've been working hard on a special card today, so I can get it just right. It's for a friend who is going through a rough time right now. I can't say who, in case she reads this post. As soon as I hear she has received it, I'll post it in my Flickr photostream and let you know.


This beautiful paper is from the Timepiece Collection paper pack by Bo Bunny and I love the whole pack! All I did was add some flowers that were distressed a bit, some tulle and a punched butterfly, I clear embossed the sentiment in the doorway and white embossed part of the French Post stamp, along with the bird. The rest of the lovely, soft text and swirls are all part of this pretty paper. (Click on the photo to get a closer view if you like.)

I'm hoping she likes it and that it brings a smile to her beautiful face!

Have a nice weekend and thanks for stopping by! :)
