Cards In Envy

Spring Is Here

Wow I can’t believe how long it has been since I made my last post. It is good to be back. My card today is for the Cards In Envy challenge “Beautiful Butterflies”. I like the title of the challenge because it is remarkable how the worm like crawling creature of the caterpillar turns into the beautiful winged colorful butterfly. The use of the butterfly in examples in life are endless. It symbolizes new life, freedom, hope, joy, spring, out with the old in with the new, transformation, etc. Here is my card.

March-2016-ButterfliesI stamped the butterflies with Versafine onyx black ink onto watercolor cardstock and then used distressed ink and a water brush to color them in. I didn’t want to really cover anything up so I chose to use vellum for the greeting.
