Butterfly Child


Our trip to the zoo earlier this week really made me eager for Spring! And although it's still chilly out and the plants outside are still dormant for a few more weeks, that did not stop me from digging around in one of my flower beds and then creating a little bit of Spring right here. :)

This week I get to share this adorable McMahon Vintage "Butterfly Child" with all of you. I colored it with Prisma Pencils and then added just a touch of Stickles Starry Night glitter in the blue area of the wings. I added texture to my Prima Annalee DP. Then I decided to accent my card with Prima Roses and Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes in metallic gold dp.

This is simply striking! I love what you girls did with this image. I avoided this one, cause it looked too hard. But you and the other designer who used this image were so creative with it. Love how you turned your oval on an angle.
