I had kind of worked ahead on my card this time while I waited for my SU Blushing Bride cardstock to arrive. So when it did arrive, the card just fell into place. This month I have chosen the completely adorable #321 Hello Little Butterfly image from Magnolia-licious. I'm sorry to say that she is only available in the Mini size at the moment. You'll have to check with Diana to see if she will be stocking this image in the near future.
So here is what I came up with...

As you know I really prefer to work with soft colors and use lots of flowers and pearls. I can really get creative in this medium!

I was so inspired by my pretty dp in pink that I got a little carried away on the inside. I don't think there are really any 'pink' mushrooms, except in Fairy land, but for me there is...
Here is the salutation panel. I made a pocket and jazzed it up and added another oval shape to write out your greeting...
Here is the panel out of the pocket...
And to bring it all to a close, here is my 'artsy' angled photo...
