Butterfly Wishes

Hi Lovelies,

How are you today?  Well I'm nearly floating away here, Oswald may not be a cyclone any longer but he's not ready to give up without a fight.  They are saying we have at least another 24 hours of rain & gale force winds to look forward to.

Well onto today's card, I used this wonderful sketch from Retro Sketches.  



When I saw this sketch I knew I wanted to use Washi Tape on this card.  I then hunted up some more purple pp & a button to compliment it.  I paper pieced the butterfly onto white c/s, I also used the purple pp to separate the white layers.  I also add some Victorian Velvet Distress Ink to the edge of the Butterfly panel just so it stands out more from the Washi Tape.

Rose Bouquet Pattern Paper
Kaisercraft - Botanical Odyssey
Hero Arts - CL272 All Occasions

I am soooo loving the softness here, Paula. And what a great use of the tape (which confounds me). Stay safe and dry. Thanks for sharing!
