Today I am back with another card featuring butterflies to help my friend Mrs Beez raise awareness of the work of the charity Amy and Friends. Amy and Friends supports children suffering from Cockayne Syndrome. The butterfly is the symbol they use to represent those whose lives have been cut short by this illness. Mrs Beez hopes to raise awareness of the disease and the work of Amy and Friends, so please visit her blog and find out more about this important charity.
I wanted to create a celebration of life, a rainbow made of butterflies, to celebrate the wedding anniversary of some dear friends.
As you can see, I created my rainbow with dozens of small butterflies made with with a Martha Stewart punch. I mounted it on some Purfect Plum card and added a organza ribbon bow and some hat pins as well as the sentiment.
Mrs Beez has made a lovely butterfly project for today, so please pop over to her blog to see it and to find out more about Amy and Friends.
