Butterfly Challenge

 
     Happy Tuesday!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Today I would like to post a card for Mrs. A's #26 Butterfly Challenge + P for pattern paper.  She is just so clever!

     I found this gorgeous designer paper and based my card from those colors.  it is from the DCWV Violet Leaf collection.  My silver and layered lavender butterflies are Recollection Sophia diecuts, as is my lavender mini doily.  The yellow butterfly is a scrap, punched with an MS punch, as is the ledger which I stamped my sentiment on.  Speaking of this sentiment.... anyone have a clue who made it?  It is one of my favorite sayings, but I obtained it when I bought an un-mounted collection, and I have not a clue.  I stamped it in Versamagic ink.  The pearls are Eyelet Outlet, and my enamel heart is Chickaniddy Crafts.  Her challenges run for a couple weeks, so hop on over and give it a try.

 
     I will leave you with a picture of my GS, as he is ready to depart for school this morning.  Luck of the Irish be with you!

Your card is beautiful and I love all those butterflies. The saying is of unknown origin but some link it back as far as1225 and others that it was Eleanor Roosevelt(1884 - 1962). Whoever is the originator it is a lovely sentiment and looks perfect with your butterflies. Thankyou for fluttering by #26. hugs Mrs A.

I'm sorry, what card?! Your darling Brian trumps your card by a mile, Mary Anne!! Such a fun age!! Now, about your card. That DSP is gorgeous! You have a real eye for design to see the potential of pairing it up with the stunning butterflies and the world's most awesome sediment!! This is a winner in my book!! Hugs, Darnell
