Today's butterfly was made with the same image and colored the same way as yesterday first card. 
I started with a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of white card stock and scored it at 5 1/2" for the fold.  A Spellbinders Classic Square die was used to cut a window onto the front side.   A mask was placed over the front of the card so that I could sponge a light yellow background on the inside and then the butterfly was attached with Tombow glue.
So many times I don't notice that I have black ink on my fingers and once again I got a little black spot on the front of the card, but it was covered up nicely by stamping a smaller butterfly over it and coloring it with the SU marker.  I then added the sentiment and the card was finished.
Thanks for coming by today!  Will you be back for Day 3?

Your butterfly cards have all been GORGEOUS! I heard there is a butterfly garden in Ames....wouldn't it be awesome to stand in a room of fluttering butterflies?

STAMPIN' UP! - Varied Vases #6

The punched vases are from a 6 x 6 package of designer papers and for this card, I just left the flowers without coloring them. Thank...
