Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop!

After discovering the Autism Awareness Blog Hop today and seeing all the amazing blue card creations, I thought I'd join in and make a 'blue' card to celebrate Autism Awareness Day.  

The Blog Hop was started by Veronica Z and Tenia Nelson.  Both these blogs have an Inlinkz button for you to add your card to the gallery.  

You can also see the complete list of sponsors/prizes HERE on Veronica's blog. If you would like a chance to win a prize from one of these sponsors, leave a comment on this blog and/or any of the other blogs participating in today's hop.

Congratulations Veronica and Tenia, for organising this amazing Blog Hop.  Autism touches the lives of so many people - what a wonderful idea to start this Blog Hop to raise awareness. 

Here is my card.
The patterned papers are by Anna Marie Designs and the butterfly was punched out with a SU punch.  I used an x-cut butterfly embossing folder for the pale blue top half of the card.

  3. Beautiful card to join in with this worthwhile hop. Love the way you've done the patterned paper with the pretty embossing on the top, and covered the join with that lovely ribbon. Of course that matching jeweled butterfly finished it off perfectly! TFS & Hugs
