Wow, what a great new set. I love coloring butterflies a variety of colors, but try using yellows, golds and green a lot as I see those in my area! Thanks for a chance.

Wendy......There are so many elements of this card that I just love, but the one that I saw first was the use of Washi tape at the bottom!!! Love how that just pulls it all together! Beautiful card!

Annette said...

Love this new butterfly set and what a great card you created! My favorite color of butterfly, I guess I don't really have one, whatever matches my card, but I like them to have some black accents.

Jingle said...

I LOVE this card you made. It is very dimensional and the colors are so pretty:) I love ALL butterflies, but when I went to a butterfly garden, I was really drawn to the blue and black combination. I would LOVE the chance to win this amazing set...I make a lot of sympathy cards and it would be great to have. Something about butterflies is so peaceful.

I love your card! I like the colors, the tape, the butterflies, it all goes well together. I also like butterflies and I like to color them bright warm colors like orange, yellow, and red.

Lovely card! What a fantastic array of elements!

Heather said...

Awesome card! I love the papers/images you used. specially that background of the back panel. It's really fun. It's not really a "natural" color, but I like to make my butterflies blue and sparkly. Don't know why, but they are pretty that way.

Fantastic card, it looks stunning I loved the way you have worked the sketch. When I colour butterlies I love to use the jewel like blues and greens as they remind me of the rainforest butterflies. cheers Linda
