Summer Butterfly

This is filled with a rainbow of the colors of summer.  I really love this great big butterfly with the tiny "dream" words in it.  
So, I made an uplifting card around it for the Unity Color Challenge 18 July/Aug 2014 and also Friends With Flair this week.


Front Sentiment:  Do you know how great you are?

This has lots of bright summer colors: purple, orange, yellow, green and blue.  
The butterfly was colored onto the red rubber directly with distress markers, given a couple of huffs then stamped.  She turned out better than I expected.

Supplies:  Lil' Inker Designs stitched diagonal die, Unity KOTM May 2013 Totally & Utterly Amazing, Feb 2014 Grow into Spring, June 2014 In love with love (inside).

Have a lovely day.

  2. How did you do the banner in the center of the card. Is this a stamp you just colored in. Love the colors. Awesome card. Thanks for sharing.

    1. The center is a die-cut using Lil' Inker Designs On The Diagonal die onto decorative paper. The butterfly is a stamp that was colored in prior to stamping. :)
