Butterfly Thanks

After all the rain we had last month, the flowers are blooming and the butterflies are out in full force.  I don't think I've ever seen a solid lavender one before but I'm sure they exist somewhere.

I used an image from Deedee's Digi's called Fluttering By.  This set of stamps comes with a couple of images and some wonderful sentiments.  It also comes in the outline version - like I used here - and also in the pre-colored version.  I colored this with Copics, framed it out with several dies, and then mounted it against some patterned paper that I found in my stash.  The sentiment is also from Deedee's Digis but from a different set of images.

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:  Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets), Brown Sugar (in the garden), and Scribbles and Scraps (anything goes).

Thanks for stopping by......

What a beautiful card Lynn! I love the beautiful pastel colors used in this card. You colored the flower and butterfly perfectly, I really thought at first look that you used the precolored image! Love, love, love! Hugs, Brenda

This is so darling, Lynn! I don't care if there are real lavender butterflies or not; there should be and this one is gorgeous. :-D I'm working on some of Deedee's bugs but I doubt if I'll have them finished before this weekend. I started, then set them aside to finish other projects, and now you've inspired me to get them finished. Thanks, my friend.
