Thinking of You Sidestep Card with CTMH Dreams Come True, Thoughtful Seasons

Last week I mentioned making a card with the Dreams Come True set - I finally took a picture today for posting! This is a front view when the card is standing up.  Love the look of White Daisy ink on black cardstock.
This is what it looks like when folded completely flat - the butterfly disappears so when they first pull it out of the envelope its a surprise as they open it up.

Here is the view with the flowers in focus so you can see the butterfly peeking out!

If you'd like to make this card, get these supplies:
Paper:  Wings Level 2, Sunflower and Pansy Purple CS (for punched out butterfly)
Stamps:  Dreams Come True, Thoughtful Seasons (sentiment)
Other:  3" Scallop Punch, Heavenly Blue Embossing Powder, Hollyhock Ribbon, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch

On a personal note, my daughter had her black belt test last Friday and its official - she is now a First Degree Black Belt!  Whoo-hoo!  I am so, so proud of my girl.  The speeches the 9 candidates gave were so emotional I don't think there was a dry eye in the place by the end of the night.  I was pretty good until my daughter started thanking me for walking the journey with her - then the floodgates opened.  Even though the past 6 months were exhausting both mentally and physically (I've taken a lot of Ibuprophen over the past 6 months) it was completely worth it to see her standing proud and tall, confident in herself and what she can accomplish when she puts her heart into a goal. 

Now turn about gets to be fair play - I have 1 year to train for my black belt test in May 2012.  I think she's really looking forward to putting me through my paces and being a drill sargeant on push ups and running!
