Another Butterfly Card

I really enjoy creating cards with a butterfly motif. They really make a card pretty. I have 3 friends with birthdays in February so I have to get out my butterfly net and round up some pretty ones for my cards. 
Here is the first one for a friend who loves purple.

I used watercolor paper to stamp and color with copic markers one of the stamps from the Anna Griffin 18th Century Garden stamp series.
I used Sizzix's stamp and die-cut "Framelits" butterflies #3 to create the butterflies. Some stickles and copic coloring on the butterflies made them really pop. They were attached to Spellbinders die fancy tag two.
Some paper source 1/4 inch cream ribbon and Martha Stewart's arch punch completes the recipe.

 I am entering this in My Time To Craft #206 'Things with wings' challenge

To Thank You

Being a paper crafter I have a room full of supplies at the ready in case there is a need to make a card fast. I needed a thank you card and this what I came up with on the fly.
It didn't take too long to whip up after I pulled out the big shot, scoring board and fired up the cutting machine❤
Aren't the butterflies pretty? They are from Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Butterflies Die Collection.
The purple paper is called "beet" from Paper Source.

Freebie Friday Super Bowl Sunday Invite

How about an invitation to send by email. If you customized it in either your word processing or image manipulation programs you could send these.

I know, I know, I did not do a good job with these but I thought what the heck. I definitely need to spend some serious time working on my photoshop skills.

Does anyone know a good on line class or you tube series that could help build PS skills?

The font I used was Myriad 24 and 14 point.
