Become a Butterfly

Hi to all of my beautiful friends. I am so glad that you stopped by today. I have a fun little card to share with you. I love cards that are special folds (flip cards, trifolds, etc.). But, you probably already knew that! This little flip card is almost all stamping, with just a small piece of DP and some ribbon. I used all 6 stamps in The Angel Company's (TAC) "Want to Fly" set. I thought it might be fun to use an entire set in a single card. I also used a swirl from TAC's "Wonderful News", and a script background from TAC's "Vintage". Feel free to e-mail me if you want more information about TAC's wonderful stamps.
For colors, I used Memento Grape, Lilac, and Pear Tart on Birch CS. These are approximately the colors of Samantha's SPCC Color Combo #110. If you haven't visited Sami's blogs, you don't know what you are missing!
If you have read some of my previous posts, you might understand why "Want to Fly" is so special to me. It is a constant reminder of the incredible courage that my daughter has demonstrated every single day as she travels her life journey to become a butterfly - a confident beautiful woman - in spite of incredible obstacles.
My wish for you, my friends, is that you find the courage that you need to overcome the obstacles that you face in your life. I know that my faith in God's unbounded love for me, as shown to me through the love of family and friends, sustains me through the tough times and makes the good times even better. I have been so very blessed with restored good health, and am now back at work to teach the last week of summer school, before three weeks of break. Take care, my friends, and find joy in the little things of life.

Oh, Susan, this card is just beautiful -- and I adore the fold!!!

Susan, such beautiful and encouraging words you've written. I'm so glad you're back at work and are doing well. I've written this to about 3 or 4 other bloggers today -- God is good!!!

Hey Susan! Love this card on so many levels. I love the sentiment, and actually have never heard it before and loved it when I finished reading it. And funny you mentioned your daughter in your post, because that is exactly who I thought of when I read it. I also love that you used a whole stamp set on one card and then some! I've never done that and don't think I could. You are so clever! Hope you are feeling well. . .Best, Curt
