Thinking of you

I made this card for a dear friend in memory of
the anniversary of her sons death, I like to send
a thinking of you card every year.
Butterflies have many meanings and symbolisms when you look
up butterflies on line, each color butterfly actually has
a meaning.  Below are a few of the meanings I found:
Butterfly Symbolism: The purpose of the life of every Butterfly is to set everything
that was once known aside and to embrace an entire new way of being. 
In early Christianity, the butterfly was a symbol of the soul.
 To Native Americans, the butterfly is a symbol of change, joy and color.
Known for its lightness, the fluttering of its wings, and especially its metamorphosis from a caterpillar into something more beautiful and powerful, the butterfly symbolizes the soul, reincarnation, resurrection, and femininity.
My background is Distress Oxides squeezed lemonade
and mermaid lagoon, is that not a beautiful combination?
Butterfly die from Stampin Up.
Wishing you a wonderful day.

I really like that you send a card to your friend each year - it's a date that she'll never forget and I am sure she appreciates that you remember this sad date too.
