Taking a Break from Valentines

Jenny Suchin is having a Giveaway on her blog.  Here is her link http://www.weememories.net/2012/01/huge-giveaway.html
I have been working on Valentines (my favorite cards to make) but took a break today to make a card with flowers and butterfly.  Butterflies always remind me of new life, new beginnings, Spring.  There is a challenge at Unity http://www.theunitystampco-challenge.blogspot.com/2012/01/new-beginnings-challenge.html to create a card depicting new beginnings.
The sketch is Simon Says http://simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/2012/01/simon-says-use-domis-sketch.html
I used new stamps - sentiment from Unity's Good Morning, butterfly from Unity's Now and Always,  and flowers from Ippity's Thanks for all Things.
