Forever Friend

Create this card for your forever friend.  Everyone has that special someone who is their person.  This is the perfect card for that occasion.  Another reason is just to tell them how important they are to you.  It’s nice to know that you can count on someone when you need them.  You can also let them know.

Beautiful Country Butterflies

You can create some beautiful country butterflies for friends and family with the supplies listed below. The soft color and background embossed floral design go perfectly together.  I also love the black outline of the butterflies because it makes them pop off the card.  It’s created with the Beauty Abounds bundle.
