Butterflies Signify Change

I love butterflies. They have become my mascot in my card making. My stamp that I use for the back of my personal cards "Handmade by Monica" features a butterfly, and I have a special section in my on line store just for butterfly cards. They are versatile, you can use them for Thank you cards, birthday cards, Spring, Summer, Get Well, the list goes on and on. But I think the reason I really like Butterflies, is because for me, they signify change. Many people are afraid of change. It is the unknown, but whenever I have to embrace change, I think of the Butterfly, keeping in mind the change may be even better than where you started.

Don't be afraid of change

I entered my Butterfly card in the following challenges:


I used:

  • Beige Card Stock for base of card
  • DCWV Card stock for printed paper
  • Tim Holtz - Ideology word bands
  • "Butterfly Ribbon
  • Spellbinder Shapeabilities
  • Bling
