Birthday Card Using Whimsy Stamps Wee Snippet

Hello friends.  I have heard there is a lot of snow across the US.  I was hoping it would be a better winter for everyone than last year; but instead it is just coming later.  Please be careful out there if you have to go out in the bad weather.  I use to live in MO and we had a lot of ice and snow.  It was so challenging to drive in that mess.

I created a bunch of cards several weeks ago; but haven't be able to post any of them.  I am having a lot of problems with my joints; especially my wrists and arms.  It has been very painful to type.  I will try to get them posted as quickly as I can.  

I created this adorable card using Whimsy Stamps "Wee Snippet".  Isn't she the cutest thing?  I also used a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps Fluttering By.  I used Whimsy Stamps Butterfly Frame die and also the Butterfly border die; which is where all the gorgeous butterflies came from.  I just cut them apart; so I could use them on this card.  

I created this card for my granddaughter, Gabrielle.  She is struggling with trying to find her place in life and will be 19 yrs. old in April.  I wanted to use some pastel colors I had in my stash; but they really don't show up very well in the pictures I have taken.  My camera decided to start taking all blurry pictures; so I had to finally take them with my IPhone.  I hope you enjoy my card.
