Just For You Card Using CTMH Layered Butterfly Thin Cuts and More

Hello Friends!   How is everyone?  I hope things are starting to get better for everyone.  It is still a stressful time for many of us.  I am still staying home most of the time; but hopefully I can get out more in the months to come.  I am worried because so many states have stopped all COVID masking, social distancing, etc.  

I do believe that all of this is premature; as there are many people who have not gotten the vaccine.  Plus, there are people fully vaccinated still getting COVID.  What a mess we have in the United States; since so many people are making COVID a political issue rather than a Pandemic/health issue.  Getting this vaccine is no different than the vaccines we have had to get for measles, mumps, rubella, polio; which all helped to get rid of those diseases in US.  It is very sad that there are so many conspiracy theories out there, making people fearful of this vaccine, plus so many other issues they have caused in our country.

I saw this challenge blog and decided to create a card to enter.  It was fun coming up with something different.  Since I love mini slimline cards; I had to use that size card to create for this challenge.  It is a sketch and it is Make The Card Challenge.  See sketch below.

Please use your imaginationThe butterflies and sequins (Holographic) are shades of purple/lavender in person; but they do not like getting their photo taken.  LOL!
