Hope for Japan~ From CTMH

I am never surprised by the generosity to others from Close To My Heart.....Jeanette Lynton (Founder) is the most generous, giving, caring person I have ever come to know. Starting now until April 30th, when you purchase this special stamp set made especially to raise money for Japan, ALL the profit, that is 100% off the $5 it takes to purchase this set, goes to helping Japan......

You are in my thoughts~ Wings

It has been a while since I posted!! So much going on I wish I could stop for a couple seconds.....
so this card has been done for at least a week, and I am just now getting to post =0)

I got this photo holder from Christmas Tree Shop for $1 and I covered the sides with Wings paper .
I added:
Vineyard Berry Ribbon, Juniper Ribbon (from Creative Basics Wings X5812) and Crocheted Colonial White ribbon(Z1126).
I cut a butterfly out of the paper and 3d'd it.
Used Martha Steward's double border butterfly punch. Used one of the butterfly's from that border.
