Pink Heartfelt Thanks

Even though virtually all of the butterfly and kitty pictures on Google Images are photoshopped, they are still cute!!  Awww....

Hi, Friends.....

Quick post with a card for Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge.  The theme this time around is Butterfly + P is for Punches &/or Pink.  As soon as I saw this theme, I jumped right in and made my card....because, well, PINK!!  :)  Unfortunately, life (and, very sadly, two unrelated deaths of friends of our family) occurred and I am just now getting this card posted and linked up at nearly the deadline.  At least I am getting this on here.  :)

Supplies used for this card include:
Fiskars - XXXL Circle Punch (3" diameter)
Martha Stewart Edger Punch - Doily Lace
Inspired by Stamping - Graceful Hydrangea stamp set (apparently discontinued)
Peridot rhinestones
Patterned and pink solid paper and white cardstock from my scrap bags.  :)
Butterflies, doily, and other bits and pieces from stash.

Hope you enjoyed this card!  Thank you for your sweet comments.  Your visits to my blog are VERY appreciated!!  Have a great week.
