We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think its forever. -Dr Carl Sagan

I knew I wanted to use the Retro Flower punch for my card and just took it from there...the sentiment is from Verve. I used the Medium and Small Retro Flowers for this, and the small butterflies from the Martha punch with 2 small and 1 medium butterflies...I Actually made a card without Stickles! Can you believe it???

I added a Memory Box Flourish to the inside as well as a few more butterflies...

Stamps: Beautiful You (Verve Stamps,) Thinking of You (Stampendous)
Paper: White, Spring Rain, True Black (PTI)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Misc: Pearl Stickers, Retro Flower Pu
