I haven't played for a couple of weeks but I'm trying to get back in the swing of things. This week's card goes out to fellow SCS member, Patty. Patty's father recently passed away. We all know how difficult those times can be. The teapotters are banning together this week to shower Patty with some of the things she loves such as butterflies and birds.

I chose fall colors for Patty's card as this Anna Griffin butterfly wings her way to Carsonville MI with a special message:

There is no season such delight can bring,
as summer, autumn, winter and the spring.
~ William Browne

I got the basic layout for this card from one on my Pinterest Paper Playground Board. The original was created by Meredith at A Delightful Waste of Time Meredith was inspired by a Flourishes challenge. As you'll see from Meredith's card I did not go all girly with this card. I love hers so much better but didn't feel this occasion called for pink or lace. 

SU - Crumb Cake (base)
SU - Very Vanilla (mats)
Anna Griffin - Butterfly image 
Scrapbook Addict - Sentiment (printed on vellum), printed vellum stickers
Ball - Gold & Green Grosgrain ribbon (sold in a 4-color pack in the canning supplies!)
Misc. Fall wire-edged ribbon

I hope this brings a bit of cuddle to Patty.
Creative Blessings!
