Wow! Your butterfly is just stunning Bonnie!! Well actually the whole card is stunning. I can't believe your butterfly was done with nail polish, the colors are so vivid and beautiful. I am just swooning over this butterfly for a couple of reasons-of course one reason is the colors, but the second reason is I love how it stacks like it does, so cool is this butterfly! Hugs, Brenda

Last I suffer from a notorious lack of time, hence the delay in komenowaniu this card, and it requires immediate attention! This card is great! I love many layers of butterfly, I love its vivid colors, I love how the colors create amazing images. Everything so perfectly matched. WOW! And I love how beautifully you emphasized the blue border of this stunning butterfly. Great inspiration, thank you !!
Hugs,
