Butterfly in Blue

Hello again!  My second post for this lovely Mother's Day.  As I type my dear husband is making a special, Mother's Day dinner; what a thoughtful guy!

My card today uses this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the colors of Black, White and Pool Party for the Splitcoast Stampers weekly Color Challenge.

Here is what I came up with:

Ah, spring is here and therefore it's time for butterflies, which were created with the retiring Beautiful Butterflies BigZ die.  The Sweet Sorbet designer paper from Sale-A-Bration in the background was perfect for the color challenge.

The oval under the butterfly was looking rather plain, so I paper pierced around the inside.  I was somewhat at a loss as to where to put a sentiment, or whether I should even include one, but decided to fit in the birthday sentiment from Petite Pairs on layered, punched ovals.

Time to run; dinner is nearly ready.  Thanks again for taking time out of your day to visit. If you have a moment, I'd love to hear from you!  Have a great week ahead!

This is a beautiful card, Stef. Love the paper-pierced oval, and the placement of the sentiment; and you've used the sketch beautifully. Love it!
