It's mid September already, the weather is starting to change, kids are back in school, and I am seeing the last of the butterflies in my garden. I thought it would be a good time to pay them a little tribute. I have a butterfly bush that is the a major focal point in my garden, and they just swarm to it during the summer months. We thought it was a goner after last years ice storm, as it was just a mass of dead tubes for branches, all the way to the ground. I am happy to say that it came back prettier than ever!
Today's card has a black card base, designer paper from We R Memory Keepers (recess), a shipping tag, plus a scrap of oak tag for my sentiment. My image stamps are from the August 2014 Unity KOM, with my sentiment being from the July KOM. Coloring is with Copic markers. I double cut the butterfly so that I could make it pop up. The blue parts of the butterfly were coated in Crystal Effects, and I used a product that I won, which was new to me, to create the sparkle. It is called Cosmic Shimmer glitter jewels. It looks amazing IRL. Thank you Di, at Snippets! My only other embellishment are some teal pearls.
I am sharing this via the linky for Friends with Flair , over on the Unity blog. Stop over there and get some wonderful inspiration. Have a great weekend!
