Wherever you go

go with all your heart...
A very simple card, the ones I love most! I started with acetate that I cut and folded into a card. I took a piece of handmade patterned paper (made out of paper napkins following this technique) and matted it to a scrap of brown cardstock before attaching it to the inside of the card.
I colored this gorgeous butterfly from Softpencil with colored pencils, cut around it, curled its wings a bit to add dimension and placed it on the front of the card. I cut a few flowers from the patterned paper and adhered them also to the front. To make the sentiment I cut two strips of paper from an old book (I liked the yellowish color of the pages) one with half of the sentiment for the outside and the other one with the rest of it for the inside.
Hope you like this one because I love it!
