Snow and butterflies! Oh my!

Awoke today to snow.  Boo hiss!  Not a huge fan of the white stuff when it's supposed to be Spring.  Good news though...it's gone!  Melted already!  Yeah!  Which means I don't have to shovel or scrape.  Wahoo!

It's Sunday so that means it's time for another Sentimental Sundays challenge.  Theme this week is "cute and cuddly".  Our sponsor is  Heart Songs Designs.  Using their sketch and a digi image, I created a "cute and cuddly" card to share with a friend. See below about that friend. 

I used some scrap papers that I couldn't bear to throw out.  Ughh!  Why did I even attempt to make a pun this day?  It's just bad.  Sorry.  Anyhow, it's the butterfly bear image printed on some flocked paper from GCD Studios.  I colored in the butterfly and added a rhinestone to give a special detail. 
If you made it this far into reading, I would like to send this card to a grateful reader.  So if you would like the chance to own this card, please leave me a comment with the words, "Pick me!" I will choose a random winner next Sunday!  Thanks for being so patient with me!  :-)

Challenges I would like to enter my card into:
Totally Gorjuss: #73 Spring
Paper Cutz:#84  Use 3 pattern papers
Totally Papercrafts: #59 Cute and Cuddly
Southern Girls: Add an Animal

Supplies used:
