My son has been going to a preschool class this summer in preparation for kindergarten this fall and this Friday is his last day and I wanted to make a card for his teacher.

I was looking through my stamps and I thought this sentiment would be perfect for her.  My background is embossed with my cuttlebug and D'Vine Swirls embossing folder.  My butterfly image is stamped using pretty in pink and chocolate ink.

It's hard to see in my photo, but I added some glitter onto my card.  I stamped the dotted outline stamp using versa mark and then I dusted Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder over it and hit it with my heat gun.

The little butterfly was stamped and then I used my chocolate chip marker to color in the butterfly's body.  Next I went over my entire image using my versa mark ink pad and again I embossed it using Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.

Just in case you aren't able to read my sentiment is reads- one person can make such a difference and that person is you!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you liked my card!  Enjoy your day!
