Butterfly Wishes with The Rubber Cafe!

I'm loving summertime! I enjoyed the eyeful of beauty I saw at CHA in Chicago this week!! And now I'm looking forward to a week of watching butterflies flutter by on the breeze!

I colored my Large Highwing Butterfly from The Rubber Cafe with Copic markers and popped up the wings slightly for dimension. I used some specialty papers I found in my scrap drawer...a metallic coated paper and an embossed piece, both from The Paper Cut, in Appleton WI. The designer paper is a BasicGrey scrap. Vintage seam binding and a few metallic dots were my simple embllishments. Wishing you all a peaceful week for watching butterflies!!

So you were at CHA too? So was I! I didn't see anyone I knew though. It was such a bummer. But I sure had a fun time and brought home lots and lots of goodies. Love your card! The butterfly is gorgeous!
