Hero Arts Butterfly

Happy Thursday! Rainy Thursday here. Just wanted to share a card I made last night, using one of my favorite butterflies from the Hero Arts "Flutterbies" digi kit. This is my entry for this month's theme "Keeping in touch and Back to School". I just can't leave out a Hero Arts challenge :)



I used a simple cake doily and misted it with Tattered Angels mist. That flower is misted, too. The butterfly is colored with copics and I stamped the "Old Letter Writing" with Antique Linen on it (but that's very difficult to see here). The sentiment is from the "Everyday Sayings" set.

Ok, short naptime today, I have to go!

Have a sunny day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Wonderful cards (as allways) since my last visit to your blog Vanessa. I haven´t been in the mood for card making since I came back from holiday hope it will come back to me ;0) It has been hard starting job after 4 weeks break and when I come home I just enjoy the sun and visit my friends. So for now I just enjoy my blogfriends creations!
Big hug Sanne
