I made this card for one of my very best friends who is having a colon cancer surgery next week.  Dark blue is the colon cancer ribbon color.  I am working on blue bracelets for her and I.  Should be posting those soon.  For the base of my card I used Anna Griffin ombre cardstock which I embossed with her Poppy embossing folder.  The center motif was cut with my cricut using  Anna's Lace Cards and Embellishments. it has three layers, I embossed the middle layer with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots.  Then I added some bling from my stash.  The card still looked BLAH!  I recut the top layer and fussy cut the butterflies to add dimension.  The sentiment was cut and written on my Cricut explore using the Spring Fling cartridge.  The design was inspired by this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch. I am also entering the FCCB-wet or dry embossing challenge and the Show it Off Saturday Linky Party over at Little Scrap Pieces
