~A Butterfly~

I have such beautiful paper to work with since receiving the generous prize from Linda via Savannah (World Card Making Day Hop).

What a blessing!

I just had to cut out the butterfly from the K&Company SW Nature pad. 

 I touched it up with a Sakura Gelly Roll and "redid" the antennae with skinny strips that I quilled.

I paired it with the sentiment from Flourishes "He is Risen".

Some little leaves from Flourishes "Tiny Flowers and Tags" are stamped in a window I cut out.

 Supplies:Flourishes Tiny Flowers and Tags,Flourishes He is Risen,K&Company SW Nature pad,Sakura Gelly Roll,MS fringe scissors,Marth Stewart inks,Memento ink rich cocoa,Ranger Tim Holtz distress ink pine for edging,Georgia Pacific white cardstock

The challenge is country comfort.

I am a city girl at heart, but have lived in the country now for almost 4 years.

When I think of the country, I think of INSECTS!

Butterflies are the prettiest. ;)  

I snuck in the leaves because we have a lot of those too.

I saw all these colors in the butterfly and paper!

Nothing else to share about this card except that I LOVE when I can bust out my fringe scissors. 

It was one of those "gadget" buys that I purchased before I was even a card maker. 

It sat on my shelf, unopened for 6 months or so-I didn't know where to apply it!

It always feels GREAT when I use it and fit it in somewhere.

Thank you for stopping by.
