The Most Special Thing about this Card

mostspecialthing
Good morning! It’s our Victoria Day holiday here in Canada so I’m having a lazy morning in my jammies in the studio with morning talk shows and coffee!  Can’t wait until the summer when I’ll get to do this every day :)  Some of you know that the dh and I snuck away for a little mini vacation this weekend.  We had a super fun time shopping, tasting wine and enjoying each other.  We were in a neighbouring town with an LSS so, of course, I had to stop by and say hi…it would be rude not to!  They had a nice selection of 6x6 paper pads, ribbon and metal badges along with some fun Memory Box dies.  I couldn’t resist this delicate butterfly!  And used it right away to make today’s card.goodies
I am playing along with the Runway Inspired Challenge.  I focused on the colours in that dress and the center image that reminds me of a butterfly.

Oohh...la...la...look at all those fabulous goodies! I actually behaved at Archiver's and just bought tons of adhesive on my last trip, but I can't say the same about my on-line shopping habit!

Love your card..the sentiment is fabulous. And the chevron ribbon...you know I bought it because of you!!

PS Any good decorating finds?!
