I was asked if I had on hand or if I could make a graduation card for one of the girls at church. I knew I had something that would "work", but I wanted to make something perfect! I love this "Butterfly Dreams" set from PTI, but I never use the sentiments with it because they never seem to fit the theme I am working with. Yay for a graduation, right? I thought these two sentiments were perfect for a young girl with her future ahead of her. I actually don't own a graduation set, if you can believe it. I was only asked to make a card, but I never can resist making a 3-D project as well. I am glad I took the extra time.
I usually don't use the butterflies that require coloring which is strange because I love to color so much, but I did for this card to add some extra detail. I actually had a dream about a beautiful butterfly so maybe that inspired me. I colored them with copics and prismacolor markers and then added some stickles (surprise, surprise). When I started out making the card, I had originally wanted to use 3 butterflies, but space didn't permit, so it was great to have one already cut and colored for the box.
I used the leftover scraps from my "Bloom" banner which you can see on the title of my blog. I really love the unexpected mix of papers.
I hope she enjoys her card and knows how proud we are of her! Thanks for fluttering by!
