Butterfly

Hi everyone and Happy Monday :) I hope your week is off to a great start. We had a lovely weekend here, the temperature got up into the mid-50s yesterday and the sun was out. I'm hopeful this means spring is on its way, I'm so tired of winter! :) Well, I have a lot of pictures to share of my project today so I'll get right to it.







I decided to create another easel card with another gorgeous image from Sweet Pea Stamps. This image is from the fabulous Fantasy Art Collection by ching-chou kuik. This particular image is called Dance of Butterfly. I colored my image with copics, and then added Martha Stewart glitter to the tail and to the butterflies. I sponged around the image with Versamagic Aegean Blue ink. I next created my easel card using SU cardstock (Night of Navy and Pale Plum). My design paper is from DCWV's Far East stack. I used my SU ticket corner punch on the corners and added pearls. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and also butterfly punches from a MS punch. The beautiful sentiment is from Verve. I was actually really happy with how this turned out. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow.

Big Hugs, Christine

Love your card..... simply stunning. I have such a hard time using lots of embellishments. Yours look so natural, mine tend to look more forced if that makes sense, lol.

Beautiful!
