Autumn Butterflies

     Most of us think of spring when we think "butterflies" but I've noticed that there are more of them in my garden in the fall than in the spring.  I don't know what's growing there that time of year that they particularly like, but whatever it is, they prefer it to what's there in the spring.

     This image is from Conie Fong.

Image colored with ProMarkers
Image is hand cut with scissors
Background squares cut with Sizzix dies
Only scraps used for the background

     Challenges:
Butterfly wheel (jade, juicy orange)
Coloring in Scrapland

     That's all I have for today.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Connie, you coloring on this image is just stunning! I love the pieced elements you have put on the background too. They are so unique and yet don't let the focal image get lost.

Brilliant fussy cutting of the image. Such patience and I love the patchwork background. We have loads of butterflies in our garden too and bees. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me this week. Hugs Mrs A.
