A New Beginning

One thing I love about butterflies is what they represent.  They represent life, beauty, metamorphosis, change, transformation, immortality, dreams, peace, spirituality, thoughts, playfulness, tranquility, fertility, delicateness, love, resurrection, appreciation...  So many things.  I have two tattoos that I got last year and one I got when I was 18.  I've always love butterflies and what they represent.  Last year I got divorced and had to start life all over again.  So, for me, right now they represent a new beginning.

I just made this card thinking it would be a great card for someone going through a hard time or celebrating a great time!  I went with black and white on this one.  I used a couple dies, flowers, gems a bow and a cross charm.

Thanks for looking!
