Butterflies - Tuesday Throwdown Challenge

Happy Tuesday!  It's starting out as a Happy One anyway. We've had so much rain this spring that my perenials are growing like weeds and getting leggy from the lack of sunshine. 

Today is week four for me as a Guest DT member over at The Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog. The sponsor this week is Inktegrety Stamps and the challenge is to use Spripes. 

The inspiration started with a sketch challenge from Sketchbook Saturday.

The Digi Images I chose to use are Butterflies and Sentiment from Inktegrity Stamps. I printed them out in several differnt sizes.

I love this paper from Close to my Heart called Miracle. So I began with that, incorporating the stipes into the challenge and then coloring the Butterflies  with Copic Markers to match. I love these blues and greens together.

Are any of you old enough to remember many many many years ago when putting blue and green together was a No No!!! Huh, what did they know back then!

I added some blue bling to the butterflies and green bling to the left side corners. I finished it off with glitter gel on the butterflies for some added sparkle.

The Hand Stitching around the card was done with my own unique design with matching Embroidery Floss.
