Week 3 of Monika and Billie background - Butterflies and stripes

Monday March 16, 2015
Week 3 is Monika's choice and it's  BUTTERFLIES AND STRIPES
I knew what I wanted to do when she mentioned the butterflies and stripes.. It was trying to decide which butterfly to use. I have quite a few because it's a favorite image. I chose Taylored Expressions butterflies and sentiment. I masked them and then used my stripes by My favorite things and stamped the green over the masked butterflies.  I think I should of probably used a mouse pad or something under the card so it would of stamped better around the masking. I don't know if it would of helped or not. But I am happy with the layout of the card and colors.
I hope you make it over to Monika's blog Creative with Monika and see her butterflies and stripes card. Give her some love..

I think the stripes add a feeling of movement of the butterflies, it's a really great effect. Classy card!

This is great...The colors and the masking were wonderfully executed. We are so blessed that you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday last week. We started a new Challenge today and will be delighted for you to come back and link up once more. Leaving you with this encouraging Word of God in Romans 15:4 and it says, "For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope." Have a great week.
