On Butterfly Wings

Roxie has come through with another fabulous sketch for us to play with. On this first card of the morning, I used Magenta stamps. The sentiment is from a Verve set. When I started to color the image, I intended to color the leaves, but then loved the drama of the white leaves on the blue background. I flipped the original sketch to make the image 'fit right'.

Have a fabulous day!!!

Your cards are always so beautifully done! I love the wonderful colors you used here! They are beautiful against the white background! I am usually not a butterfly person but this card really makes me re-think that! Its is gorgeous....and you don't have a black panel on behind the white.....Giggle!
