A Butterfly Dream Card
Why not make one for an artistic friend?

This butterfly dream card was created for the sheer fun of cardmaking and art pursue.

It's a greeting card that would be so right for someone who loves butterflies and art.

To draw, you must close your eyes and sing.

- Pablo Picasso

It's one of those kind of greeting cards that I love to make. I can't remember what my thoughts were that afternoon but I was in the mood for creating one of a kind handmade card.
