Father's Day is coming up, so I wanted to make something for my husband.  He has always been fascinated with butterflies.  He had a butterfly garden at home, but the nursing home he is in doesn't have one, so he can't enjoy them as much as he would like.  

I used Close to My Heart Paper  in the colors of Denim Blue and Honey for the butterflies and New England Ivy for letter shadows, with Olive for the letters. I used the Cricut cartridge Art Philosophy for all of the cut outs.  

This cards is very simple, but took some time to make, as it was hard to place letters on top of the shadow letters in just the right way.  This card will fit in several contests this week; Color My Heart, Fantabulous Cricut Challenge, and Bitten by the Bug 2.  

I wish all the fathers out there a very happy Father's Day.
