"Just For You"

I have been hoarding this piece of paper for about three years. I just love it. I think because it makes me think of my grandmother. She lived in Missouri and it was such an adventure for my brothers and I to go visit them. I finally broke down and used it today. Now, I will probably hoard this card. LOL! I colored this cute little h'Angler image with copics. I cute her out with my Lifestyle circle dies and then framed her with a Nestability. I used left over pieces of the solid blue paper to frame the sentiment and cut out the MS butterfly. I added some blue ribbon, and cream lace and half pearls to finish off my card.  I am entering this card at the following challenges:
