June 2012 Belated Birthday Card: Elegant Lines and Butterfly

My aunt's birthday is in February. I made her a card and over "smooched" it. There was so much moisture from spray that the card warped and dried that way. Every effort I made to flatten the original card caused its components to separate/break apart. Finally I gave in to my personal desire to send her a handmade card, even if it is four-and-a-half months late (though I made sure she received a timely phone call to wish her a happy birthday). :) The old card will be sent inside of the new one, because I made it with her in mind.

The new card doesn't have all of the glitz and glitter; but, it does have butterflies...both stamped and embosslit-ed (if that is a word).  I associate butterflies with her because of our mutual love of flowers and being out in our gardens.  I enjoyed making this card so much that I'm making a few extra for Operation Write Home as well.
