Blue Bluebonnet


If you live in Texas you just HAVE to know what a bluebonnet is! It's the State Flower of Texas, blooms in the spring, and is simply gorgeous! This image is from Kitchen Sink Stamps and the flower is a four-step stamp and the butterfly is three step. I'm finally getting a little bit better lining these images up I think. I'd finally finished the card and hubby said that I really needed to have the butterfly sitting on the flower! Well, try as I might, that just was not going to happen - but it does look like it's coming in for a landing anyway!!

I used all SU card stock and ink on this, along with some pearls, a SU punch, and ribbon. Although it appears to be black in the photo, the dark card stock is Night of Navy.

Thanks for stopping by........
