Butterfly Among the Flowers


Whoa! Lots of blue here. I love this big butterfly among the flowers. I did this card for the Queen for the Day challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I cased this gorgeous card belong to Jay_Bee: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2323931?&cat=500&ppuser=132530 I added a flourish at the bottom as she had flourishes on her background.

The card was really easy. I had colored it a while back so all I had to do was pop it on the base and add the sentiment and flourish. It did take a while to color, though.

I have to take off for another week or two. Yep, I know I was just off for a while. I'll be back soon. This will probably be last card for a bit, though.

I hear you on the taking off. I just got back. LOL to see your gorgeous and lovely butterfly! I think the whole card sings "Summer, bring it on"!!

Colleen Dietrich said...

This is so pretty, Benzi! Wish I'd see a big beautiful butterfly around my garden like this. We seem to get lots of tiny ones, and I'm not sure if they're even b'flies, but rather moths.

MaryH said...

Welll!!! Such a lot of gadding about! I hope this is another 'fun trip' and that you have a real good time. Will miss you. This is one glamourous butterfly and I'm loving all the blue beauty against the yellow flowers. Blue & yellow - such a pretty combination & so cheery. I like that sentiment with the little elegant flourish. So take care, see ya when you get back. TFS & Hugs
