Marking things off my list

I rescently wrote a 35 before 36 list, (no I haven't shared it here)
One of the things on my list is to keep in better touch with my long-distance friends
I made this card in attempt to make a start at that!

The image is from the super talented Krista Smith from Saturated Canary
You've seen her work on my pages before! 
Her new challenge is to use Polka Dots, so I did my very best to polka up everything!
Even the little ribbon which was all black, I added white dots using my white gel pen
Here is the close up of this this pretty little fairy

I added some "clear" glitter glue to her wings to make them stand out
I cut her out using my Big kick die cut machine and a Spellbinders Oval nestabilities
On the black oval I ran it through my cuttlebug embossing polka dot folder

Now for the butterfly!  I'm so excited to share this butterfly with you all!!!
She is made out of a dryer sheet!
YES, I said a dryer sheet!  You wanna know how??  I will not take credit for this one.. I found this
fab tutorial on youtube here

It's hard to see, but the butterfly is actually see through! 
I even threw some extra dryer sheets in with my blankets tonight so I'll have some more to work
with this next weekend, ha!
I also added some stitching along the edges, and along the sentiment too!

I can't wait to send this beauty off to Florida!
