Just Us Girls #520 - Photo Week

What a lovely photo Vicki has chosen 
for this week's challenge at Just Us Girls.
Butterflies always make a nice card and while I have a few different butterfly stamps I went with the one that looks most like the Monarchs that Michele blooms every year. 
The background is Altenew Spicy Yogurt cardstock stamped with their Wildflower Garden in Sand Dunes ink.  The largest butterfly is from Happy Little Stampers and the smaller two from Catherine Pooler. I colored them with Inktense pencils although the small one was first stamped directly on the card with Maple Yellow.  I added the black outline with my Micro pen.  It seems I'm in need of sympathy cards lately so I chose a sentiment from PTI.

The Design Team would love to see your photo inspired cards in our gallery.  Check them out for inspiration and enter the challenge for a chance to be Chic of the Week and a guest designer.

  1. Bobby these two are just as beautiful as any of those 250 that bloomed on our box last Summer!! You've provided them such lovely 'eats' they'll come back again, and again!
    I'm sorry it's needed, but that family will love this thoughtful card!
