Stampin' Up! Hey Love & Forever Lovely
Are you looking for a cute Valentine's Day project...

The butterflies in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog are wonderful... which is your favorite?

Beauty abounds thanks Download Beauty Abounds Thanks

This is a cute layout and changing the sentiment could make it a card for any occasion. Stampin' Up! outdid themselves in the butterfly category this year. It is hard to choose which are my favorites. 

Do you have a favorite butterfly set? I'd love to hear about it.

Enjoy
