Butterfly Baby

         How sweet is this image?  I have had it on my wish list for the longest time, but I just don't have anyone having babies. One of my wonderful house mouse list friends sent me the image so I was finally able to play with it.

     I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly Challenge.  I knew I wanted yellow and black for my butterfly and just repeated those colors in the design paper.  The white dots from the butterflies wings tie the black borders in with the image since just plain black was to stark. The offray ribbon also repeated the dot pattern for a cohesive whole.

  1. What a really pretty card, a lovely image and love your colour choice, very striking.

    You have linked this to our Allsorts DT call, but I don't see any mention or link to the DT call in your post which is a requirement of entering

  2. Mary Anne, this is beautiful. Your choice of background papers is gorgeous and your butterfly almost flutters off the paper it's so real. Love, love it. Black polka dot is one of my fave accents.
