Find Joy . . .


My little girl has gone to Bonnie Scotland for just over 3 months to work in a Lab so I've made this card for her.  I started with a square white card blank, added a layer of navy blue, then a layer of white which I stamped with Stampin' Up Playful Petals in Night of Navy and then rounded the corners.  The sentiment is by Hero Arts (Anytime Messages).  I added the gorgeous butterfly (Darkroom Door Butterflies) stamped in the same ink.  I seem to be leaning more and more towards these CAS cards even though my craft room is full to overflowing with all sorts of embellishments! 
I'd like to enter my card in the folloing challenges:
My Mums Craft Shop - Things with Wings
Digistamps 4 Joy - On the wings of . . .
By the Cute and Girly - In the garden
Moving Along with the Times - No DP
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Something that flies
