LAST entry for Botanical Fantical

I made this butterfly card before my trip to Lake Louise and now when I saw it again, I thought this qualifies for the Botanical Challenge . So here I go again....this is definitely my last entry as the deadline (Aug. 8)  is approaching fast!
 First I embossed the butterflies in red over text (Hero Art's Friendship Definition) and I cut the butterflies out.The line paper are from Basic Grey. I used the SRM Stickers for the sentiment. After all the layering, I thought something was missing....so I added a clear button. If that makes any sense at all (LOL). My DD said she really likes the design! Now when she said that, I knew this is "not bad". Yesterday was my son David's 17th birthday. Here are the photos of the birthday boy! 
Due to my back injury, he actually picked up some chores to do--drove me to grocery store and today he made chocolate chip cookies!
Happy17th birthday, David! ( David can't wait to get his braces off---it's been too long!). My next post will reveal the winner of my blog candy giveaway and "did you know..." feature. Ciao!
