Whimsical Butterfly

I really liked the sketch challenge at SCS today. This is what I came up with using it. The butterfly is from Butterfly Beauty from Unity.

I used a few stamps from Growing in Unity to create a frame around the butterfly.

To make the background, I sponged So Saffron, More Mustard and Pretty in Pink on a single piece of white card stock. Then I cut the pieces to fit the sketch. After that, I stamped the flourishes on the side pieces.

The butterfly is colored with Marvy markers and then embossed.

I hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
