I missed the queen for this week...Betty or gbedwright...what a super beautiful gallery. again it took a long time to pick one to try, but when I saw this one...http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p;ppuser=27967 I really like the framed picture inside...(that stamp from ODBD is on my wish list..:0) ),,so tried it with God's beauty.
I just love blue butterflies and when I saw that this weeks color challenge had blue in it had to give it a try. I am totally not much of a brown person, but because of Pat Smethers I am learning to like them, mostly the rich dark ones, but this one is not TOO bad. Needed a better b-day card stock on hand so enjoyed making this one.
I cut out the frame and then embossed the pieces and raised the frame up and added the other layers. I didnt like just the brown on the edges so later added the blue for a base and think it brings out the pretty butterfly better...Thanks for visitng...:0)

Beautiful way to honor Betty. I, too, love blue butterflies! I'm itching to go to the Butterfly Pavilion down the road from me!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
