My project today is a card with another of my favorite quotes:

You must be the change
you wish to see in the world.
Mahatma Ghandi

First let me show you my card:

Here's a close-up look with it laying flat:

I really do love the way it turned out!  I used a brand new Close to My Heart paper pack called "Footloose".   Here's what the entire paper pack looks like:

I used our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to make the entire card.  I made the card using the card image on page 55, D5, card < Rctngle7 > at 4 1/2".  I then cut out 2 sets of the rectangular image for the sentiment from p. 55, D5,       < Rctngle7 > cut at 1 1/2" and 2".  Finally I cut the butterflies at 1/2" and 3/4" from p. 55, shift < Bttrfly2 >.

Since I used Lagoon and Pear cardstock to cut the butterflies, they seemed a little plain.  I decided to add a little texture to them by stamping a background image from the stamp set called "Love Life" (D1482).  I then used our Silver Glitz Glitter Gel to add a little bling to each butterfly.
