Card base 4.5 x 6
black card stock 5 x 5.5
Designer paper 3.75 x 5. 25

From a smaller piece of designer paper, tear two corner triangles and adhere over the top panel of the card. Turn the corners and distress all the edges with the Tim Holtz distressing tool.

From the Raindrop on Roses Die cut a black delicate lattice work from black and one for a white. Now, glue them one over the other but off set the bottom to cause a shadow effect. I chose to use the black on top. Adhere this to the center of the card base.[set aside]

Using the foam tape, I adhere one over the other to give it some dimension. Once again with foam tape, adhere this rose cluster to the top of the lattice work on the card base.

From the paper collection I fussy cut 2 of the butterflies and hand stamped the JUST THINKING OF YOU sentiment using the above Heartfelt Expressions cling stamp set.

I cut it around the wording and cut the "about" "you" separately. Then they too were adhered to the card with foam tape and off centered to the bottom right hand side of the card.  Randomly add the butterflies to your card, Stickle and your done.
