  7. How simple and gorgeous having your flutterbye as the focal point of a card. Your courage to do this is fantastic and it is lovely! I really enjoy when I see this because you have put so much emphasis on something that is gorgeous the way you have colored it and put your embellies "around" it. Way to go! Thanks for coming to Sentimental Sundays. Luv Samara DT
