Forever Butterfly Anniversary Card

The card is based on Laura's Sketch 19 over at 2S4Y
It also fulfills the ABC Challenge
A is for Anniversary Card

This one is pretty straightforward, but I wanted to keep focus on its underlying symbolism. The butterfly has to go through a lot of significant change and difficulty in order to become what it was meant to be, just like a relationship does as it grows and develops. It takes work and sacrifice from all involved, but when it all comes together--you have something of wonderful beauty!

Happy Valentines to everyone,
--Kathryn

  4. You know, Kathryn, I have never been a butterfly fan-on clothes or jewelry, etc.--even though I love to see live ones. But your analogy of the metamorphosis of a butterfly compared to a successful marriage on this anniversary card was really thought-provoking, and true. I think I will appreciate the symbolism much more. Thank you. bonwal
