Make My Monday: Butterflies &/Or Dragonflies

Ah, nature! Winged things fluttering past us on a summer night...pure bliss! This is the image I had when I saw what our challenge was for you this week over at Make My Monday. We'd like to see some butterflies and/or dragonflies!

Here's my card~

Details~



Can you see my vision? What do you think about the vibrant colors? And, yes! This is another favorite layout of mine--used it for my 2011 Christmas cards. Also versatile, as you can use ANY punch for the window! :) Since I used bold, bright colors with a mainly CAS design, I'd say this is as close to a "style" as I have! I'm linking this up with Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge for this week. The scripture is Phillipians 4:8, and we've been asked to create something that shows off our true style. :) I LOVE bling, I LOVE my clear glitter gel pen, I LOVE my dry embossing folders and I LOVE Victorian style--all of these were used in the creation of this card!

I hope you'll find your own vision for this week's challenge and link up with us! And please take the time to look at the other DT creations and say hello--we all appreciate hearing from you! Happy stamping! :)

A really effective design Mynnette. The butterfly, floral panel and text stand out so beautifully against the gorgeous embossed background.

I love the word pictures you paint Mynnette and yes, I can see your vision! You have a great eye for colour and I love your little butterfly perched on the side of the window.
