Butterfly Kisses...

Life has been so busy this past week. This is the first card that I have found time to make because of work, home and gardening. I love my gardens but they do take a lot of time in the Spring. It is well worth it though come July when everything is in full bloom. I planted some perennials that attract butterflies this year. This is what made me want to make this card. This is one of the new Sugar Nellie Home Grown stamps.
The image is colored with Copics. I made a mask for the image because of the light colors I used and then did the clouds. The two stamped butterflies were cut out and popped up to make them look realistic. All the butterflies were brushed with Stickles to give them some sparkle.
Stamps: Sugar Nellie Home Grown, Serendipity Stamps
Paper: SU Pink Passion, Neenah White, DP Basic Grey
Ink: SU Bashful Blue, Pink Passion, Memento Black and Copics
Accessories: 2 SU Punches, MS punch, Paper Shaper Punch, Stickles, CTMH flowers, Michaels ribbon and Pearl Stickers
Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I have created.
I really appreciate all your wonderful comments about my cards.
Please by again soon,
