Since I love the butterfly so much I really enjoyed these butterfly stamps from My Heart Stamps for You! I added a little sparkle to this one with a bit of glitter on her wings and then paired her with a Petaloo Color Me Crazy flower that I dyed to match with the same ink. Popping up the corners of my "frame" makes the whole thing look a bit like a shadow box in a butterfly collection. Hope you like the card. I'm eager to get back and make some more!

Tara,
Your framing of the beautiful butterfly is most fabulous! Such a cool effect in Salt Air paper with those corners!

Thank you all for the kind words. I haven't made a 'frame' like that before, so it was fun. My other butterfly card will hopefully get posted too. I gave it to Betsy Wednesday. I like it much better than this card. It was more labor intensive.
