Butterflies are Free

      I really love the way this card looks now that it's finished.  I had a few moments of doubt when I was deciding on what to use for background and when I was choosing the die for cutting the image.  

     The image is from Ching-Chou Kuik and it's called "Fern & Butterflies."  I'm still doing water colors for painting my images and this was actually one of the first ones I did.  I think my painting has improved over the few weeks I've been doing it but this one was good enough to turn into a card even though it was an early effort.

     The image was cut with a Spellbinders fancy die, embossed along the edges.  The green dp on the right side is from Recollections and the flowery dp with butterflies was in a prize package I received from the Butterfly Challenge.  The bow is one of my signature bows, shaped like a butterfly, and hand sewn with a pearl.  The sentiment was printed, cut with an Avery Elle die, and added near the top corner.

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
