Field of Butterflies

This card kind of made itself!  I love it when I don't have to think and think and try and mess up and throw away!  Now, I'm not going to say I didn't do any of that today, but not on this card!

I'm going to enter it in Stampin' B's #95.  This challenge this week is to use a song for inspiration.  I can think of 2 for my card; Butterfly Kisses and Butterflies are Free.

And I'll send it over to SCS.  The Ways to Use It Challenge #307 today is Rainbow Bright.  We are challenged to use multiple colors of the rainbow on our cards.

Then on to CASE Study #24.  Follow the link to see Mercy's inspiration card.

The finished size of this card is 3" x 6"  I rarely make a card this size, but Mercy's card had the long narrow look and it was fun to do a different size card.  Stampin' Up! offers open end envelopes that fit this size.

I was able to make use of some scraps from my scrap bags and some of my never ending stash of butterflies.

I love it, Bonnie and the songs that inspired you are perfect for all those fluttering butterflies. Good job on both challenges. So glad you played with the Stampin B's this week.

I LOVE butterfly cards! They seem so easy to put together. ANd guess what? I have used butterflies tonight on a card that will be for next week's PDCC challenge. Can't wait to show it to you!

Good job on combining challenges. Remember when only one was enough? Some days, those stars do align and it's fairly easy to combine several.
