A very special card

I made a similar card with this image in aqua and used it to advertise on a Facebook Page that I would be at a local fair a couple of weeks ago. Somebody saw it and came to the fair and asked if I could make it in pink but with a butterfly. I was very touched to be asked to make it as it is for a memory book. They had a stillborn girl 7 years ago and collect pretty things so my card will be preserved in her memory book.

Image - Sugar Nellie No Shell Like Home
Medium - Copics
Papers - mag freebies
Dies - Doohickey fence, MB snail and butterfly
Flowers - Wild Orchid
Punch - MS birds on a wire
Other - charm, baker's twine, Prima butterfly from My Crafty Heart
