Butterfly Layered Card

Butterflies are just stunning creatures. They're delicate and so full of color with such a soft presence. I could photograph them all day long. So I decided to create a card using the butterfly from The Butterfly Effect by Sheena stamp set for this card along with the sentiment, If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies. How true is that? Such beautiful and true words right there.

I colored in the butterfly using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (listed below) and then fussy cut out the butterfly. I pulled in papers that coordinated with the butterfly and used foam adhesive and ribbon with twine for some fun texture and interest on the layout. I honestly love how this card came together! All the color is just a breath of fresh air that you can send to someone to brighten up their day. Sometimes a friend may just need a little handmade gem of encouragement if they're going through something in their life, or if they need a bit of a pat on the back for making a change in their life. Nothing is better than support of a friend and loved one. I love having these types of cards on hand for those such occasions. Be a bright spot in someone's day.
