Emily we will miss you

I am part of the Young Women's program at my church.  One of the beautiful young women in our group graduated from high school and is on her way to Brigham Young University.  We are all so proud of her.  She is truly a bright, shining star in our lives.  I'm sure she will do fabulous and I can't wait to see her on her first visit home to tell us all about it.  

I was trying to find the right image for this card and searched my vast stock then came across this lovely butterfly.  I thought of Emily flying away as my own daughter did four years ago.  I thought this would be perfect.  It comes from Create with TLC.  I love that blog.  She's always giving away free images and sentiments.  The sentiment on the inside comes from them too.  I colored with Whisper Strokes markers, Glossy Accents and some Stickles from Ranger.  

I went around looking for a sketch and found this lovely one over at Scrapper's Delights.  

This sketch went just perfect with the image I chose.  The papers I used are Bazzill, Core 'dinations and my Stash 'O Scraps.  The die cut used is Spellbinders and the punch comes from Martha Stewart. I added a flower from Prima Flowers and the butterfly is Bo Bunny. The sentiment on the front I did on Word and punched it out with a punch from EK Success.  Finally, I used a ribbon that I won over at Really Reasonable Ribbons.

I am entering into the following challenges:

Dream Valley #38 - Dies cuts and punches
Really Reasonable Ribbons #53 - Bling and ribbon
Whoopsi Daisy - Die cuts and/or punches
Lexi's Creations #71 - Sparkle and shine
Crafty Ribbons #4  - Flowers 
CCEE Stampers #1231 - Use some red
The Ribbon Girl - Bingo (ribbon, flower, charm & ribbon, pearl, image)

Thanks so much for visiting.  I hope you have enjoyed your visit.
