Hero Arts Butterfly

I love that Hero Arts has released some designs for the Silhouette! I've always loved this butterfly image, so now I can cut it with my Silhouette and I can make it as little or as small as I choose. Can you tell I love my Silhouette? I posted this card on Flickr last week for a Hero Arts challenge, but had forgotten to post it here.
I glued individual toothpicks to the back of the image. Last month I loved the toothpick challenge for Everything But the Kitchen Sink, so I wanted to use toothpicks once again. I loved creating this card for their challenge. The card stock and sentiment is from Stampin' Up and the patterned paper is a digi paper design called Cheery Glen by Misty Cato (Sweet Shoppe Designs).

Thanks for stopping by! It is a very rainy Martin Luther King, Jr. day. I'm listening to his speech right now on YouTube. My son said he's very glad that he was born after the famous speech. I asked him what he meant. He said that he's glad he's lives in a world that was made better by Dr. King. What a great perspective from a 6-year old.

Four more days before flying down to attend CHA!
