Think pink

     Tammy is releasing some beautiful images from A Day For Daisies this week in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness.  My mom is a survivor and I know there are several people in our crafting community who have beat it, are battling it, or know someone who has or is.  Here's what the whole release looks like.
     I chose to work with this beautiful daisy image and colored it with Copics.  The butterly was diecut and then I used the negative to trace the shape onto some matching vellum.  I glittered the vellum and layered it with the die cut.
     We still have our "Pop It Up" challenge going on over at the ADFD blog.  You can hop over there and pick up those beautiful butterfly freebies to play along with and there's a freebie in the store too.
     If you missed my There She Goes post for today you can scroll back one and check out a cute little owl.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Flutterby Wednesdays--winged creatures
Word Art Wednesday--encouraging or uplifting sentiment
Top Tip Tuesday--things with wings
Tammy's Scrappin' Corner--anything goes

     Have a fabulous weekend!

Hey Girlfriend! Sorry I've been MIA from your blog lately. Lots going on & then my back went out on me. UGH But I'm on the upswing. Life is good, I'm blessed & I'm working on a Saturated Canary card for my youngest granddaughter who turns 17 next Wed. Yikes! Where do the years go? LOL
Anywho.........your card is gorgeous! I LOVE THAT BUTTERFLY! Leave it to you to come up with a beautiful way to showcase it.
Have a blessed weekend, sweetie!
Huggies & Sweet Blessings ~

Love the vibrancy of the colours you chose for this stunning card. The white of the lattice and the background of the image just pops next to the rich corally pinks. The butterfly is the perfect complement to this delicate image.
