...Flutter By Well Wishes (FBW107)

This is my submission for this week's challenge at the Flutter By Wednesdays Blog (FBW107)...create a clean & simple card with butterflies.  I decided to use this sweet fence and butterflies image from C.C. Designs' set called "Swiss Pixies Stamp Kit #1", and a sentiment from "AmyR Spring Sentiments". They were stamped in black, and the image was colored with Copic Sketch Markers. I paired the colorful image with patterned paper from the Ooh La La For Him collection by My Mind's Eye! I added some simple piercing with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer to complete the card.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and I will see you back here tomorrow with another Verve Day Thursday and a TGF Sneak Preview! I can't wait to show off another sample using the April Verve Stamp release, and you will go nuts over the new TGF stamp set!  Until then...
Supplies
Stamps:  Swiss Pixie Kit #1, AmyR Spring Sentiments (C.C. Designs)
Papers:  Always Artichoke, Kraft, PTI White, Ooh La La For Him DP (My Mind's Eye)
Inks:  Black
Accessories:  dimensionals, mat pack, paper piercer, paint pen, copics (0, YG41, 45, E31, 33, 35, 37, 47, Y13, 15, 17, 38, BG93, 96, 99, B21)
