Butterflies Live in the Flower Garden

Friday again and it's windy and very cool. I'm hoping to work in my yard tomorrow and I think it will only be 68 degrees, but sunny...so maybe.

The QFTD challenge today on Splitcoaststampers today is to honor Lois aka Clownmom. I chose to case this card of hers: I stamped my flower garden in SU Always Artichoke. If the green looks grayish, it is because when I tweaked my card the SU Melon Mambo was really brightened and in your face so I left it a bit subdued. I used a piercerabilitie die on the bottom and sponged with the Melon Mambo after piercing. Added the tiny pearls to my sponged butterflies and did some sponging between panels.

I am entering my card into these challenges:

BEAUTIFUL Benzi, I love the butterflies with their pearl bodies and that pretty image!! The piercing on the bottom is so so pretty. I hope it warms up so you can garden a little. I would send you some of my heat if I could!! :)
