Growing in Unity day 3 - Happy Birthday- Here today Here tomorrow

Today I'm half way through my GROWING IN UNITY week. 
The card I'm sharing today used an ITTY BITTY stamp  HERE TODAY HERE TOMORROW
It is just a little stamp set but it is probably one of my all time favorite stamps. I just love the little butterfly. A few weeks ago on social media a story was shared about a young autistic girl who wanted a birthday party, but not one person showed up. Her sister shared a photo of her crying at her birthday party. Her sister made a plea to have people send her cards this year to make it a special birthday. This story really touched my heart. I have a son who is on the spectrum, and I know that her story could have been his. So I wanted to make an over the top fun card for her. 
 Here is the outside of the card. I used a dp that had butterflies and flowers on it. I added pearls, ribbon and lace.


I put wink of stella (gold) on the centers of the flowers and butterflies to make them sparkle.
 The inside of the card is a pop-up card. The back pop up I used the dp. The front pop-ups I made plain and added the stamped, and colored and fussy cut out butterflies. I also added butterflies to the base that didn't pop-up.
 I had a HAPPY BIRTHDAY sentiment stamp that I received in a UNITY grab bag.


I would really like to hear what you think about this card. Leave me a comment and you will have the chance to win some UNITY stamps.
Come back tomorrow to see what else I have created with UNITY stamps.

  7. MariLynn this is so gorgeous - I love it and I am sure it will be appreciated by that little girl. Aspergers/Autism is such an isolating condition, and yet there are so many afflicted. Bless you for thinking about this child, and acting on your thoughts too with this beautiful card.
    Blessings
