Hello Friend Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "Carnation & Butterfly" with CTMH products

Hello Friends!  How are you?  I hope you are taking time to enjoy life.  I never seem to have enough hours in the day to take care of myself and do all the things I need or want to do.  LOL!  I wonder if other people feel the same way.  It feels like time is moving faster and faster or I am just standing still.  LOL!

I finally managed to create a couple cards.  I lost my crafting mojo for a while; so I haven't felt like creating anything.  I was really excited to use this new background die from Close To My Heart; and I wanted to color my new image from Ching-Chou Kuik "Carnation & Butterfly".  I fell in love with this image the minute I saw it.  I love butterflies and flowers too; so it was a perfect fit for this new background die.
