Today, I am sharing with you a special card I made for my son's teacher.  She just lost someone very close to her heart and I thought it would be nice to get a little something showing we are thinking about her and are here if she does need someone.
This is her first year teaching the 3rd grade and my son loves her so much.
She is a wonderful teacher and loves each of her kids so much.

I used "Here Today - Here Tomorrow" Unity Stamp.
If you know me.. I love my butterflies.
But this time the sentiment really was perfect for this card.
I used Maja Designs - Vintage Autumn Basics Collection
As I like to stamp directly on most patterned paper, I decided against that this time because the white really popped the blue flowers out.  

I added some cute ribbon from my stash and a button from Pink Paisley- IndigoBlue
I also stamped not only on the white paper but also some velum paper since I wanted to add some dimension to the butterfly.
After the ink dried I carefully cut out the butterfly and folded on both sides of the body.
I attached it just at the body so the wings looked like they were more so in flight or dimensional. 

A close up of the butterfly.

I also did the inside of the card with the sentiment.
Again using the same blue rose paper.  And white card stock to stamp on the sentiment.
