Butterfly Tag

Good Morning!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at; MFT Sketch, MFT Color, Simon Says Monday, Inspired By A Song, Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes! and Simon Says Work It Wednesday, Floral.

(oh bummer his little butterfly antenna is smooshed)
 I used the MFT Stitched Tradition Tags and Blueprints 12 die cuts, Cheery Lynn Butterfly 6 die as well as PTI's Swoosh stamp and die sets.  The floral die cut background is Michael's Brand, Recollections.  Eyelet and Ribbon for accents.  I colored the Vellum Butterfly with Copic markers and then 'painted' on a bit of Pearl Ex for shimmer.  I don't know why I don't color Vellum more often, totally changes up the look.

The song that inspired this card is by Mariah Carey, Butterfly:

Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Fly abandonedly into the sun
If you should return to me
We truly were meant to be
So spread your wings and fly
Gosh when my daughter was young she played Mariah all the time.....flashback! 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
