Blue Butterfly


I enjoyed using Makiko's sketch so much that I wanted to try it again, using a whole different color scheme.  Here are the challenges that it qualifies for:  wee Memories "Butterfly" challenge, Simon Says Stamp and Show "Things with Wings", Simon Says Stamp "Summertime Blues", and of course, CASE Study challenge #1, where I found this sketch to begin with, where the challenge was to case the highlighted card. 
I used this BoBunny sunflower paper from 2005 - I loved it so much I bought multiple pages, and now I'm down to just 1 uncut page; I adore the blue and yellows, they just make me happy. 

Supplies:  Hero Arts H5426 Artists Butterfly, CL184 Thoughtful Messages, versafine onyx black ink,  gold cardstock, Bazzill miniscalloped SlateBlue cardstock, BoBunny Sunflower Stitched Stripe, unknown scraps of yellow gingham and blue and yellow stripe papers, gold dotted ribbon, blue pearl, nesties circle and scalloped circle dies

  17. Wonderful cards (as allways) since my last visit to your blog lin. I haven´t been in the mood for card making since I came back from holiday hope it will come back to me ;0) It has been hard starting job after 4 weeks break and when I come home I just enjoy the sun and visit my friends. So for now I just enjoy my blogfriends creations!
    Big hug Sanne
