Butterfly Wishes

I love butterflies, I really believe they are one of God's very special creations that bring us much awe and delight.  These are an old retired stamp set from SU I stamped them then colored them with Copic's, cut them out and then put Crystal Effects on them.  The card stock is SU but the beige paper is handmade pressed paper that I bought at a craft fair years ago.  I used SU border punch and a verse from the new SU stamp set.
This is the same as the above but I used Hero Arts lace border on it.   I thought these would be good cards for almost anything and I love all the new lace coming out for cards.
I used SU white cardstock and my Scor-pal buddy to put lines on the card then I added the lace from Hero's Art and I was finished.  I just love butterflies so making these cards were quite easy.
One last butterfly before I close for the night.  This one is from the same SU retired set only colored with Copic's Y18 and YR 16. I added some vintage DSP and concluded that I'd made enough butterflies for the day.   I'm tired of 93 degrees I want to go outside and enjoy the outdoors but its just not cooling off just that's why I can't get my motor running.
Remember to 'Pay it Forward'.
God bless,

Each of these is so special, Granny! I agree -- butterflies are one of God's special gifts to us. They have always represented "grace" in my mind. Thank you for the lovely reminder, and for sharing these beauties! Hugs, Deedee
