Tuesday Morning Sketches #343

Good Morning friends.  Thank you so much for stopping.  I do appreciate your visit.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this one is inspired by Jessi.  I love this one!  Well, I love all our sketches, but this one was super fun to play with.

I am sponsoring this week and the prize will be reflective of my daughter's personality.  She graduates this week!  I have been up and down the emotional scale over all this.  I'm happy for her and I'm crying at the same time.

Anyway, what here's the card I created featuring tons of butterflies!


My card was created to go with a gift I made for one of my daughter's friends.  She is also graduating with Hollyanne.  As these girls graduate, I am reminded of butterflies.  The caterpillar years are their growing years.  Their senior year they enter their chrysalis and at graduation they emerge and are ready to soar to new heights, tackle new adventures and follow new paths.

My card features many butterflies from the Martha Stewart butterfly trio punch.  A couple of shades of lavender, white mulberry with gold dots and white card stock.  This is the gift I created that inspired the card....


I still have a lot to learn about painting, but I still love how this ombre butterfly wall art turned out.  I'm ready to make more!

I then cut a quote from Silhouette double-sided adhesive and gold foiled it.


I am super happy with this and my daughter was pleased, she said her friend is going to love it!  I hope so.  But if not, I love it and it has a place in my room!  LOL

Thank you so much, again, for your visit.  Please be sure to visit the DT's blogs and leave them their well deserved love.
