I know it's only the beginning of June and we need rain around here but where has summer gone and hail? Good job we can craft and have summer and there are so many summer challenges around too. This card is for one of my nieces and there will be more birthday cards to come as towards the end of June starts our birthday madness season in our family well one of them there's another towards the end of the year.
For this one I used one of my sassy girls that I've not yet inked up and she so reminds me of childhood summer days when we use to go bug hunting as a gang of children all with jam jars in hand, holes punched in the top so the bugs could breathe and fishing nets in hand, a competition to see who could catch most and never touch the wings or they'll die. Then at the end of the fun day all setting them free at once and if we were really lucky having at least a dozen or so butterflies to let go at once such a wonderful sight. Do kids still do things like that?
I decided to go with different colours ( like the huneysuckle I can see from my window) for me for a change just for fun and perhaps as the weather was dull too. The papers are from a kit I got from QVC not sure of the brand , the ribbon is from my stash as is the peel-off. The flowers were white but I coloured to match and thought gazinias would look perfect, well for the yellow/orange flowers the blue just because. The button centres are papermania and the butterfly I made from fantasy film. The image is coloured with promarkers of course.
