Sending Special Wishes

This is my card for the Fortnightly Challenge over at the Forever Friends Challenge Blog.  I don't quite know if I am a Guest Designer from Bearly Mine Designs or a Monthly Forever Friends DT member joining in with the Fortnightly Challenge - I am a member of the Bearly Mine Designs DT and Donna is sponsoring the Forever Friends Favourite for this challenge.

The theme is Die Cuts and Punches and this is the card I have made:

I have used a gorgeous Forever Friends image from the new Kraft Notes collection and the papers are from the Bearly Mine Designs Designer Extreme CD and the Mini Dots collection.  Everything has been layered on dark brown Core'dinations card stock and I have used my current favourite Fiskars border punch.  The butterfly is a Die-namics die cut and the ribbon and gems are from my stash.

I have decorated the inside of my card with the same papers as the front:

The random winner is sponsored by Michelle Perkett

and the Forever Friends Favourite by Bearly Mine Designs

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lexi's Creations Challenge 87 - Punches and Dies
