Butterfly Garden

I have tried for the past couple of years to start a butterfly garden in my backyard. Unfortunately, it is hard to get some plants to grow due to the red clay base under the top soil. But I am not giving up. I keep adding top soil and plant fertilizer in the hopes that one day I will succeed. So for now I will settle for these beautiful butterfly and flower images.

For this card I used another sheet of designer paper from my "Tea Party" pad by Craft Smith found at Michael's. 

I colored the image with Prisma colored pencils and Faber Castell metallic pencils. I love the soft pink color of the flowers and I am very happy with the way my butterfly came out. The image panel is given dimension with pop dots and I used pink sating ribbon to finish my card. I didn't add a sentiment because I haven't decided how I will use this card. It could be used for almost any occasion, except a masculine card.

These toppers are a great way to make a card quickly. I never seem to have the right card on hand when I need one. I have lots of cards, but most of them are note cards. I am trying to get ahead on cards that I can just add a sentiment and get in the mail.

Just a reminder. Don't forget to stop by the Sisterhood tomorrow for the new challenge. My sistah's have created some fabulous inspiration projects.

Well, that's it for today. Hope you stop by again soon.
