This was so much fun. I tried for a kind of spot-lighting effect on the front. The butterfly is first watercolored with Orchid Opulence reinker and then colored with French Lilac and Burnt Umber Twinkling H20's. Then I dry embossed the wings and put dimensionals underneath to keep them puffed up.

This is beautiful! I love the softness/ageing of your background and the coloring of your butterfly. Art.

This is really pretty! I love the inside (on your other uploads) too! A question though, why is there ribbon on the front of this one, but not on the picture where it is all folded out? Is it tied around to keep it closed? TFS! :)

This card has to be seen IRL to be believed! Yes, I'm happy to say "I got one, too!" and I can't stop looking at it and showing it off to everyone who will sit still for a minute. This is an unbelievable creation and everyone who does sit still for a minute is in total agreement! Thanks, Linda! Lucky me!
