Heartfelt appreciation...

I am truly thankful for all the people in my life...I appreciate every single one of them. Family, friends, my bloggin' friends...I am so lucky and blessed to have you all in my life! Thank you! This card is dedicated to all of you!! ;)

It is based on today's Limited Supplies challenge over at SCS. It is called "A Challenge to Die for" Yup, you guessed it, to use Die cuts on your card! I made the card base from the Sizzix Scallop Card Die and the flowers are from the Flower Layer Die. The flowers are made from fleece and felt. The butterflies and green branches are Martha Stewart punches and I also used a Melissa Frances rub-on, lots of glitter, gems, a chipboard heart and some velvet type ribbon.

Don't forget to tell the people close to you how much you love them and appreciate them! Have a great weekend everyone!! ♥

Heartfelt Hugs,
