Butterfly Rainbow


Hi there!  This past week has been extra busy at work so I really didn't get into the Craft Cave at all but today I managed to make a card for two challenges - Curtain Call and The Heart Desires.  Lots of butterflies popping up in challenges these days which gave me a reason to ink up this Papertrey Ink butterfly with these yummy Altenew inks.  A rainbow of butterflies...  ahhhhh!  4 of them are stamped directly onto the card and the other 4 are popped up for some dimension. I finished it off with my go-to Mama Elephant thanks die covered with a generous coating of Glossy Accents and a sprinkle of gems.  Hope you all had a good weekend!

ETA:  Also meant to play along with the photo inspiration over at the Fusion challenge - How pretty is that butterfly surrounded by the rainbow of watercolors?

Stamps:  (Butterfly from Butterfly Hope) Papertrey Ink

Nothing better than a rainbow of butterflies, Jen. It's such a lovely card.

Work should never get in the way of crafting, but unfortunately it does (and for me it funds my crafting so I shouldn't complain!) Your rainbow butterflies look gorgeous! Thanks so much for joining us at Fusion.
