A beautiful Etsy purchase

Hello, friends.  I wanted to share a beautiful Etsy purchase with you and introduce you to a blogging friend of mine, Scarlett Clay
Scarlett is a talented artist who's work inspires me so much.  She works with many different mediums and shares projects and challenges that we can all enjoy.  I hope you will visit her and tell her I sent you over!
I'm also inspired by Scarlett's devotion to her beautiful family.  Scarlett's youngest son, Knox, has Cockayne Syndrome. This illness causes children to age prematurely and sadly it shortens their life expectancy.  Scarlett keeps us posted on Knox on her art blog and often creates pieces that are inspired by her journey as she tries very hard to process her son's diagnosis.
Scarlett has an Etsy shop too. All the proceeds go to Cockayne Syndrome research.  You can visit it here.   I purchased these beautiful butterfly cards there. I love all the colorful scrapbook papers mixed with book pages, transparencies and three dimensional elements.
Have I ever mentioned that I have a thing for butterflies? I do. They are so delicate and beautiful. Thanks for visiting today.  Please pop over and visit Scarlett's lovely blog.  I know you will enjoy it!  I'll be back with picks from a recent trip to Deland, Florida and some fun packaging to share.  xoxo
