Eureka Challenge #78 - Add a Butterfly

This week at Eureka Stamps we are dreaming of Spring and Summer by asking you to add a Butterfly to your project.  The butterfly can be the image, and embellishment, or even the paper...as long as a butterfly is somewhere on your project.

For my card I used Digi58901 - Lacy Butterfly.  One of our DT members often uses watercolor crayons and I always love her cards!  So I decided to break out my watercolor pencils for this one.  I colored the image with the watercolor pencils and then blended the color with baby oil (because I was just too lazy to get up and get some water - LOL!!!).  Then I decided to cut out the butterflies and pop them up so they almost look like they are coming off the paper (at least that is what I was trying to go for....). 


I have to admit that I was rather pleased with how this one turned out.  Usually I'm very critical of my own cards but this one I liked.

I'm submitting this card into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today.  God bless you!!!!
