CAS Butterfly

The challenge at CAS on Sunday is 

I've had this daughter poem for years! I came across it the other
day when I was cleaning and knew I wanted to use it on my daughter's 
grad card somehow.  
My youngest is graduating high school in two week and then heading off to university! Where did the time go?
I didn't want to make a traditional grad card with a 
cap or diploma and when I saw the theme at CAS on Sunday was 
butterflies I knew what I was going to do.

I embossed the butterfly in white and then sponged on some 
Tim Holtz distress inks. I cut the poem down and then added it to
the front. So simple.

The poem was too long to fit completely on the front so I put the
last verse inside and stamped a little butterfly.

Happy Stampin'
