You're in my thoughts

Happy Sat crafters.  It is a rainy Saturday here in Missouri, but we need the rain.  What a better time than to share another card with my readers.  Today's card features some hand stitched sewing that I have tried for the first time on my cards.  It turned out pretty good.  I had help with my new tool - the We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy tool.  It is actually a little card to use than I thought - and maybe for that reason is because I tried to pierce through two sheets of cardstock, I am not sure, but nonetheless I made it work, and it didn't turn out too badly in my opinion.  I made this for a friend who has been going through a lot of rough times lately in her life, and with her family.  I just wanted to show her that I care! 

The butterfly image comes from Stampendous.  I actually did a haul video and this set was in that video.  If you wanted to see the video here is the link.  I added some Linen twine around the butterfly for something different for the antennae.  I added some pearls for more dimension and interest, and the sentiment comes from HA set called "Friends".  Thanks for visiting me!!  Be back soon with another card or project!!!  :)
