Box of Butterflies

Monday, July 4, 2016

 Wouldn't it be wonderful to open a gift and have gorgeous, colorful butterflies burst out?!  What an amazing surprise!  That's sort of how my card came about.  I love playing with watercolors because the finished product is always a surprise to me!    

 For my card, I chose two STAMPlorations sets:  Winged Things and Sketched Simple Gift.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle.


Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:






 


(My card looks like it's "exploding" with color and butterflies!)
