A Butterfly On A Bokeh Background

While cleaning out my craft closet this weekend I found  many digi images that were all colored and fussy cut and ready to be made into cards. I need to put some of these to good use. The little butterfly on todays card  is one of about a dozen butterflies  that were just hiding out in my craft closet.

  The background for this card is one that I made using the  Bokeh Technique.
The frame for the sentiment is one that I cut on my Cricut using the Fancy Frames cartridge.
The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Hero Arts.
The digital print butterfly is also from Hero Arts.

I'm entering this card in the following card challenges:
Dream Valley Challenges #107
Sister Act Card Challenge #108

I have a new follower that I'd like to introduce. Her name is Kate and she blogs at    Manualidades por mi
I hope you'll take the time to visit her blog and perhaps become one of her new followers.

Have a great day,
Ta Ta For Now,
