Butterfly Moment

Another card displaying my need to not let go of summer quite yet! I love the butterfly images in Flourishes set, Butterfly Moments. I used the challenge over on SCS for this creation. Friday's challenge was to use only paper, ink, punches, nesties, cuttlebug etc. You get the idea? NO embellishments, unless you make them out of the listed usable items. I did punch three small circles to mimic brads. I used my new cuttlebug edging folder for the bottom of the card front.
Close up of copic colored butterfly. Love the color intensity you can achieve with these markers. Pink and black together, wonderful combination! The butterfly is cut and adhered at the mid section only to enable bending a bit up off the card stock! No sentiment, as I want to use this card as the occasion will dictate. Perfect for a thinking of you, birthday, get well card, don't you think?
I will be leaving for a few days, on a four day escape with my daughters and Mom! I did not realize it was World Card Making Day when we planned this excursion! Gasp! I think I would have made it another time! LOL I hope all of you have a wonderful time and weekend. I will be anxious to see all your wonderful creations! Take good care!

Love that pink and black combo! The butterfly images from that set are so lovely--what an amazing card set they would make for a gift for a gardener. This one looks like it just lit on the paper. Have fun with your daughters and mom--more memories to treasure!
