a beautiful dandelion

Hi there! I created a card tonight for 4 challenges.

Cinema Saturday #99-Edward Sissorhands-use a die cut
Play Date Cafe #51-mint green, light blue and beige
An Oldie but a Goodie #4-add a butterfly
Midnight Madness Sketch #76

This saying by Queen Kat Design reminds me of Edward Sissorhands in an odd way! Edward was beautiful and sensitive and he created beautiful things. When you look at a dandelion, you can see the nuisance that they make to your yard! or you can see the beauty in it! I've had this dandelion stamp by StampinUp for at least 5 years. I don't know the manufacturer of the paper. The butterfly is a die cut created with the Cuttlebug. I also ran the blue panel through the Cuttlebug embossing folder. I added pearls and a flower. I also added Dazzling Diamonds to the dandelion. Thanks for stopping by!
