Bring Back the Butterflies!
Recently I shared a wonderful visit to the zoo with my boys, my sister and my mother. At the end of the long day, when the boys were worn out and we were getting cranky, we meandered to one last exhibit-the butterfly exhibit. We entered a screened enclosure painted like a monarch caterpillar and all around us flew thousands of butterflies. Big ones, small ones, colorful ones, monochromatic ones. So pretty, so wonderful. Even the boys were amazed, and that was something considering they had just seen it all!
A very talented card designer and I were just corresponding that we have missed butterflies around on the blogs. And we've decided to Bring Back the Butterflies! Easy to do, since the latest challenge from Wee Memories is to incorporate a butterfly. Simon Says Stamp & Show is also having a challenge for Things with Wings! I've created mine using some acetate, Glimmer Mist and Glossy Accents. Still trying to work out the glitches with the mist and I thank you for partaking in the journey with me.
