Butterfly Kisses...

This is my last post as a guest designer over at Hanna and Friends Challenge Blog
The challenge this fortnight is Butterflies.
I hope you will come over and join us. :)

I used a Saturated Canary image called Butterfly Wishes (or is it Kisses? It's retired either way.) and I colored her up with my Prismacolor pencils and a few Copic markers. All the designer paper is from Echo Park's For the Record paper pad. All my mats and the card base are Stampin' Up's Basic Gray card stock. The dies are Labels 8 from Shapeabilities

The butterflies are punched from my left over scraps with a Martha Stewart punch. I adhered them with Glossy Accents and then added more to the blue butterfly and the buttons on her outfit. For the sentiment, I just typed it out on my computer. The ribbon is from my stash; I had just enough. :) 

One the inside, I used more of the paper and the rest of the quote I started on the front. Added a white panel from the same dies for a note and called it done. :) 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
