Y'know I saw those sweet butterflies and didn't have time to ink 'em up - I think after looking at your beautiful first card that I need to!
I love the cool background you've created with Travel Time! You'd think it was a piece of patterned paper!

Both of your cards are great but that butterfly one stole my heart. I love how the butterflies at the top are so rich in color and the closer they get to the bottom of the card, turn lighter. Great job!
