Everyday Moments with SNSS ~

Good morning, I created a card from Everyday Moments. I love the flight of a butterfly and attempted to capture it on this card.

The butterfly image is stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with markers and water pen. I cut it out and popped it on the base where I stamped the butterfly multiple times in second and third generational ink.
The card is 5.5x5.5 and I created a simple frame using a multi line marker. The sentiment is stamped using versafine black. I added some bling to the corners for some embellishment. 

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful Sunday funday!
