For Someone Special

Good Day! 

Gorgeous day here, cooler temps and less work today (well other than my own chores--but I can deal).

This card is titled Someone Special.

I will enter this in the following Challenges; MFT Sketch, Dies R Us, The Great Outdoors, Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes! and Simon Says Work It Wednesday.

I think I went quite literal on this Sketch. 
I used the Spellbinders Captivating Squares dies, YOWZA!  A little sponging using Melon Mambo Ink by Stampin' Up!  The Butterfly die is from Cheery Lynn, cut in black card stock and layered beneath with some Vellum.  Gina K Designs, White and Wild Orchid card stock.  

The sentiment is by MFT, Pure Innocence, I Pick You!   Adhesive Pearl and Rhinestone flourish for accent.
For all of MY 'someone specials' out there, I hope you know who you are!!!
And in case you missed my Hubby's latest find.  He's becoming a 12 year old again bringing me all types of creatures, yesterday it was an itty bitty toad.  Who says the romance has gone out of our marriage?  lol

Thanks for fluttering by!
