Butterfly Summer

Hi, again!  This is the second entry this summer about God's wonderful creations - butterflies!  Do you ever wonder why they don't fly straight like a bird, but up and down, choppily, here and there?  Maybe so the birds can't get them as easily? The names for "butterfly" in other languages are so cool!  In French, they are "papillon", and in Spanish, "mariposa".

I stamped several butterflies of different sizes all over white cardstock, then shaded them in using markers.  A little coordinating glitter was added for sparkle.  This was mounted onto blue cardstock, then black to make the whole thing stand out.  This was mounted onto a piece of teal vellum, then onto a crinkled piece of purple cardstock, then onto my white card base.  It is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" big.  The die cut butterfly was given to me by my friend, Donna, and the butterfly base was covered with clear-drying glue then glittered with patina glitter.  The "sparkle" stamp is from Stampin' Up.

Thanks so much for coming by!  Please leave a comment if you'd like - I'd like!  haha
