Walk on a Sunny Day

I wanted to make a card for the High Hopes challenge as today was the first sunny day in some time. I walked my Mum's dog Tess without getting wet which was wonderful.  She still got muddy as the grass is really sodden but it was nice to be able to walk around and stop and look without rain dripping down your neck!

My card uses summery colours despite the fact it is only January and lots of butterflies. The image is from High Hopes and the sentiment is an old one from MFP.  The lace circle die is from Cheery Lynn and the butterflies are punched with a Martha Stewart punch.  I have also used corner punches, a Spellbinders die, an embossing folder and lots of tiny gems on the butterfly bodies.

I have combined a few challenges here

  5. This is absolutely cool! Love the image, colors and lay-out a lot! So glad you linked up with us at Word Art Wednesday this week. We are so blessed with your creativity. Love to encourage you with God's Word in 1 John 3:1 which says, "How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God." Have an awesome week.
