Favorite 2012 Project...And A Challenge At Paper Issues!

Hello, everyone! Happy Saturday! I am just stopping by to show you my favorite project from 2012. It was a tough choice, but I decided that this is near and dear to my heart.
It is a card I shared previously on my blog, which I sent to my parents. It is made with multiple layers, including stamped images which are cut out, ribbon, acetate and paper layered butterflies, butterfly washi tape, a stamped background, and recycled avocado netting. I loved how it turned out and added the metal charms with hand written words in honor of the anniversary of my grandmother's passing. She was an amazing woman and taught me so much. She was always there for me and I hope that my presence in her life brought me as much joy, love, and peace as hers did (and still does) in mine. I miss her every day. I don't think anyone has ever known me so well and I cannot help but miss her beautiful face. So many fond memories, but, back to the card :) ....
Here is a close up of the detail of the butterflies, too. I hope you enjoyed viewing this card as much as I loved making it! Let me know what you think!! :)

I am posting this card on the Paper Issues blog, which you can find here: There are so many talented women and beautiful projects to see. You should check it out! :)

Thanks for stopping by! Wish me luck! :)
