You are a Blessing to Me

Well how beautiful is this?

This is our inspiration photo for Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger this week. I was inspired to create a card using watercolor paints, which I haven't done in a very long time.

I couldn't resist:)


This butterfly die I discovered on Betsy Veldman's blog when she made a set of small note cards with it. I instantly loved it. It is a Quickutz die that includes both the solid butterfly and the one with the circle cutouts. I cut them from watercolor paper and then painted with four different colors. I cut off the paper antennas and added the flower stamens in their place.
The leaves were cut with PTI's Turning a New Leaf die and I colored those with Distress Inks - Tattered Straw and Old Paper. The sentiment is PTI's Signature Greetings.
This was a fun card to make. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Wonderful take on the Trigger but my favorite part is that great sentiment.

A fabulous card. The pinky color is scrumptious. The leaves have just that slight tinge of color and the sentiment fits perfectly.
