Happy Birthday Butterfly

Two of my very favourite colours when creating cards are teal blue and shades of purple ~ they just seem to go well together!

I used a dark purple card stock but you can hardly tell either in the photo or in person :o( 
Because of that, I put a white liner on the inside and placed one of the watercoloured butterflies there :o)

The butterfly on the front has folded wings and perches atop an adhesive dot giving it some added dimension but still keeping it flat enough to send by snail mail.

I'm entering it in the following challenges --

Flutter By Wednesday - favourite colour with butterflies, fairies or angels
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - CAS challenge 
Party Time Tuesdays - summer birthday







SUPPLIES
Bazzill card stock
Hero Arts' Antique Engravings
Sentiment - Inkadinkado's Personal Expressions
Row of Tiny Flowers - Dollar stamp from Michaels' 
Watercolour Paints

Love the teal blue and shades of purple... the butterfly looks breathtakingly real!

I was browsing through blogs and discovered that leaves could be made from a flower punch, too.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me compliments.

Love,
