Butterfly Birthday Wishes

Today is our oldest daughter's birthday.

Here's the card I made especially for her.

She is such a beautiful person
and brings beauty into our lives.

I stamped the butterfly with Brushed Corduroy distress ink
on watercolor paper and painted with my 
Koi paints.

I added some splatter for a little extra interest.

This card is an A7 size (5" x 7")

Wow Bonnie, this card is just stunning! I love how your butterfly came out and I love the splatters. But it is that sentiment that I am really loving, how true it is! I bet your daughter loved this card! They do bring a lot of joy into our lives don't they?! Hugs, Brenda

Hello Bonnie

A beautiful, serene card. I like your choice of vibrant orange for the butterfly and the splattered background brings it all together.
Truly a beautiful sentiment.

Gorgeous card for a very special person! Love the soft watercolours of your butterfly ... using the distress inks is like no line watercolouring, right?? Haven't tried that yet, but it's on my to do list. Gorgeous colours and the splatters add lots of movement to this beautiful card. Thanks for joining us at ATCAS, my friend. Loll xx
