Butterfly Trail

At last, we have sunshine! It hasn't been around since last Monday..except maybe 2 seconds for a couple days.
It really is beautiful and warm. It is supposed to be 70 degrees today. That makes me happy.

My card was made for the Ways to Use It challenge,WT522, on Splitcoaststampers. We were supposed to make a card using something we thought was a lucky charm for us. Well, I don't think I have a lucky charm but some people believe a butterfly lighting on them is lucky. So, I used that as my excuse to play in the challenge. :-)

I needed to make a tall, skinny card to fit all the butterflies I wanted to use. It is 3 3/4 x  8 1/2. I have an envelope to fit that size. The card is already in the mail to a special friend who could use a lift.

The butterflies are colored with Copics. The large one at the top is stamped twice and one cut out and popped up with dimensionals.

My card is also for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Things that Fly

Wishing you all a beautiful Sunday.

Beautiful, Benzi! So light and happy and spring-like. Love the colors and the tall and skinny card. I'm happy you have sunshine today. Our hot weekend temps dropped to a quite livable mid-80s and projections are for mid-70s tomorrow. Now that makes me happy! :-D

What a pretty butterfly card Brenda. I love the range of colours and the top one looks as though it is about to fly off the page. It is sure to bring cheer to your friend and makes me smile to think spring is on the way.

This card is just perfect for the last 3 wonderful spring days we have had (I even got a little weeding done. Yuck!) Your butterflies are so pretty, and your coloring in the lighter areas made me think at first, you'd done an organza butterfly over the top of the darker look. They truly look ready to just fly off the page. Seems like good luck to me, pal! TFS & Hugs

Always refreshing to see different size cards. This is a cheery one too! Love the bright colors you used.

Think Spring has finally sprung! Spent the last week in Gatlinburg and noticed how green it had gotten when I got back. Loving this time of year!
