Butterfly wishes....


Hello today I have a card that I made for the Whimsy Inspiration Blog. I used Crissy Armstrong's Rose Butterfly, The image is absolutely gorgeous and so fun to colour! The sentiment is from a rubber stamp and available with the Birthday Letter Seals set. Peach roses are my favourite flower so I knew that's the colour I wanted to use. Then I asked DH what colour should I do the rest and he said black because the most beautiful butterflies are black and orange...awww. So it's not black but I did take his suggestion and use a warm grey, I think it worked well.
I am enterting the following challenges....Crafty Creations - winged, Truly Scrumptious - sketch, Fab n' Funky - fav colour, Flutterby Wednesdays, C.R.A.F.T. - bugs, Digital Tuesday - butterflies or lace, Crazy Challenge - forest friends / back to nature, Incy Wincy Designs - a bug's life.
