Papillon Potpourri for the Teachers

I wanted to give Luke some cards to give his teachers and bus driver.

They have been so good to make his kindergarten year a pleasant experience.

I found these butterflies in my UFO butterfly box 
and had the oval left over from my last Stamp Stack.

I've had this embossing folder for a couple of  years
and I don't believe I'd used it before.

I ought to use it more
and that's the theme this week at

Simon Monday Challenge Blog

It's a NBUS too.
I've already joined Darnell's challenge 3 times.
But if you use a NBUS,
do join in her challenge.

Thanks for taking the time to visit.

This is a beautiful card Bonnie! I love the simplicity of it, but the elegance of it too. The embossed background and oval is beautiful and those butterflies are amazing and look like they are going to fly right off the page! Hugs, Brenda

Oh, very pretty, Bonnie. I'm with you about folders not used. I'm sure I have several.

Your Luke and my Thomas were both kindergartners this year. They're growing too fast. :-)

You are so talented with the embossing folders, Bonnie! I know I always say that, but it's because I'm blown away every time. This card is designed so beautifully!! (Thank you for posting my button and a reminder to your readers even though you've already entered three times! That was very kind of you!!) Enjoy the weekend! Hugs, Darnell
