Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge- anything but a square card

This week's challenge at KK stamps is to make a card any shape except for the standard square shape most of us use. I used my largest Nestability to cut out the shape for this card and for the layer. I picked up some drool worthy butterfly paper by Prima from SGD and wanted to use it. I happened to find a sentiment that came with Victoria from the Crissy's Cuties line from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps and let's face it...it was the perfect touch for this card! A friend of mine has been going through a very hard time and having to take some different directions in life than they had planned or expected so this card was made for her and her partner to remind them that change can sometimes bring the butterflies and lead to a better place. I gave it to her tonight and we hugged it out lol. Inside I wrote 'During some of my most challenging moments in life doors opened for me to incredible experiences that wouldn't have been available otherwise. My wish for you is that this change turns out to be one of your butterflies in life." I thought I would share it as we all need to hear this from time to time in our lives.

One of the best colourer's I know, Melanie, is the hostess for this week's challenge. Hop on over to the challenge blog to see the details on how to play along and what's up for grabs to win! I encourage you to take a minute to look over what the rest of the DT created for this challenge...I tell you....this team rocks!!!!
Have a happy Saturday xoxox Andi
