If Nothing Ever Changed....

there'd be no Butterflies!! Sad world indeed without butterflies!! Posting in a hurry- storm on it's way (not sure if its' major but, last Friday we had major probs with flooding- pic of a guy in parking lot at his business with water to his waist --if he was "short" the paper took some liberties to be dramatic!! Although, my dad in Indiana asked about the rain- watching the news and keeping up with his "southern family"--- LOVE that man!!

To business... starting to get back in the swing of things and this card is for the My Favorite Things Weekly Sketch challenge on SCS here. Sketch is from Frances. Have had the "Inspired by Butterflies" set for a little bit and hadn't inked yet.

Stamped the butterfly with black stazon on watercolor paper and colored with SU cherry cobbler and So Saffron. Cut out and layered on two different nesties that were cut and embossed. Added some black pearls and the last of the So Saffron SU ribbon (love this color). Paper is from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found. 
Added some Stardust Stickles to the butterfly... IRL very pretty!!

Frances' sketch

TFL and stopping by!! Hope your week is off to a good start.

Absolutely LOVE this card, Vickie! Great colours and the butterfly is gorgeous. Love how you layered the nesties too. Hope the storm is not a bad one!

Wow, that butterfly is stunning on these new papers! Just ordered some MME pads today (Amazon) and need paper like a hole in the head, but can't resist the new patterns! I think it's a disease! :-)
