"Thank You" Butterfly Card

CPS Butterfly Card
How about a card for two challenges? (As if you haven't heard that before, right?) :) This card will fit CPS 181 sketch plus a challenge site called "Let's Ink It Up." Their challenge was a anything goes but with a twist. You had to have some yellow on your creation. I used a new Hampton Art clear stamp set with lots of pretty butterflies. This card was a good excuse to get out my new Copic markers. I've been wanting to play with them but cleaning and reorganizing the craft room took a lot longer than I planned. (I thought I could do it in five days and it took nearly eleven days. It's so clean and organzied now, I'm almost afraid to mess it up. Not! Wink!) :) The chipboard buttons are by Jenni Bowlin. The frosted looking jewels are by Martha Stewart. Are you staying cool? I can't remember it being so hot! You go outside and feel like you are going to melt. I have a bird bath outside my kitchen window that I try to put fresh cold water in several times a day. This means filling up a bucket outside and goodness, it is hot! The birds have been rewarding me though with great bathing "shows." They are such fun to watch and almost make doing the dishes fun! :) I think they are depending on the cold water too so I can't stop no matter how hot it is. Thanks for stopping by and thank heavens for air conditioning. :)
