A Note filled with HUGS!

Hello Friends and Welcome to the LAST Monday in January!

Today I'm playing along in the Fusion Card Challenge.
When this popped up in my email I was intrigued by the sketch 
with all the white space and wondered if I was
really capable of making a card so simplistic (outside my comfort zone!)

This challenge actually closes tomorrow so I'd better hurry!

WELL ... I almost made it!
But, the white space got the best of me and I just had
to add this butterfly that was laying on my 
worktable from a previous project!
HEY! ... I came close!  LOL!!

You can use either the sketch or the photo inspiration
for your creation ... or ... combine the two of them.
My card is somewhere in the middle! 

Anyways ... I tried!

Hope you have a great week!  
Mine is looking on the busy side so fingers crossed
the winter weather cooperates!

As always . . .

Oh, Darlene, I know how strong the pull is to fill up that white space, but I think your butterfly is a gorgeous addition. I seriously love that butterfly, the way the two parts go together. I really love the white space, too, especially with yellow. So pretty!
