Skipping Stones Blogs for Boobies Hop & Auction

Hello! Skipping Stones Design is having their third annual Blogs for Boobies blog hop and card auction to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation and I have been invited to join them! 
More than 60 designers will be participating in the hop/auction running from June 1st through June 7th! Hopefully, you've reached my blog by way of Penny Cunnigham Ward's blog' (if you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please click***HERE***).

This is a huge post packed with info, so bear with me... :) Want to support the cause?? 
Read on below to find out how:

For my card today, I am using Breathtaking Butterflies!I love layered cards, so keeping with I know and with what I love to do... I went for it!! I tried to get a good angle of the layers, but I had no such luck. Layers are beside the point... Do you see that embossed butterfly? Gorgeous right!!  I clear embossed and cut that piece into 4 equal parts.  Fraying/distressing the edges and then piecing back together.  I then stamped and embossed that beautiful sentiment on a vellum. 

Even decorated the inside for the recipient on this card! Even added lots of bling!! I will be included a free Skipping Stones Design Stamp set for the winner of this card. "Cancer Shmancer" will be going home to with you!***BIDDING INSTRUCTIONS***
