Butterflies...

are an element that I love but often forget to put on my cards.  I always enjoy seeing either stamped butterflies or punched butterflies on other people's cards, and actually used to put them on my own cards  before but then, for whatever the reason, I forgot about my little winged friends.  And, I forgot about how much they can add to a card.  Today's image is a very simple one from Penny Black called Garden Poems here and one of the reason's why I like it is for it's "just doodled" look.  And, when I finished my card, and looked at it all assembled it just seemed "lacking" to me.  And then I thought, butterflies.  And, there you go.


The paper I used is from the Basic Grey Indie Bloom collection, here, . Yep, I am using paper from this line AGAIN!  I am seriously grooving on that paper pack!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Be well,
Sheila

If I could get away with it, I'd add a butterfly to every card! Love your beautifully colored flowers, Sheila and the butterflies add the perfect touch!

I love butterflies on cards, too, Sheila...butterflies and birds.

Your card is really pretty. I love the stamp you used and those Basic Grey papers tone in wonderfully with your flowers:)

The butterflies go perfectly with this image- a nice finish :) I like this image for it's "doodle" quality as well. It's really fun and beautiful with these papers!

Your coloring is getting too darn good, girlfriend! And the inking, and the use of the patterned paper - all good! Seriously love this card and thanks for the butterfly reminder.
