Bird and Butterfly

Good morning everyone....my mom, sister, and I are big  Dancing with the Stars fans so I had to go to Mom's last night to watch the semi finals....my dad even watched it with us....we all wished we could dance like that!!!! When I got home the Bachelorette was on so I settled into the craft room with Emily and all those cute bachelors...George found something else to do....LOL!!! I made this card with an adorable Tina Wenke stamp from Stampavie called Bird on Dogwood Branch...my DD Holly gave it to me for my birthday!


The image was colored with copics and I used Jen's SFYTT May sketch.  The outer wing on the butterfly was popped up on a foam dot and the paper is from MME's Fine and Dandy. The rick rack, gingham ribbon, and tiny yellow rhinestones for the flower centers finish it off.

This is for a few other challenges:
1. Hooked on Crafts Challenge - flowers
2. Ooh La La Challenge - ribbon or twine
3. Paper Creations Ink - in the garden
4. Catered Crop - rick rack
5. Paper Sundaes - things with wings

Thanks for stopping by.....have a super fab day!!!!

I love this and how you did the shading around the image, what a sweet little bird and then all the wonderful goodness around it. I also like watching DWTS and cannot believe how close it is this season.
