That is the title I am giving to this card I created for you today.  A little background first:  I have a butterfly garden in front of my living room window.  We get monarchs in early spring and then we get gulf frittalaries in the rest of the summer.  I have planted milkweed for the monarchs and passion vine for the gulf F's.  We call them Fritolays because their name is so hard to pronounce.  (hubby came up with that one, and they are orange and white kind of like a frito.)

 This is a clean and simple card with only one layer and then some punches.  I used PAPILLION POTPOURRI stamp set in CALYPSO CORAL, SUMMER STARFRUIT and new SOFT SKY ink pads for my butterflies and randomly stamped them on the WHISPER WHITE card base.

 I used the BUTTERFLY PUNCH for three of the butterflies to adhere on just the body so their wings are 3D.  I also added some small pearls on their bodies for a bit of bling.

There is a scripture which says, "WHERE MUCH IS GIVEN, MUCH IS EXPECTED." and we have indeed been given so very much.  So much beauty in this world, much wealth of knowledge at this time of the world, so much here in the United States - freedom, opportunities, abilities, jobs, food, housing, peace, etc.  I choose those three words to use as my sentiment SO VERY MUCH.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I appreciate your visits SO VERY MUCH.
