For the Red, White and Blue!

Happy Fourth of July! This year, because of my surgery last week, I didn't have time to make any cards to send for this holiday but I wanted to make something for the Red, White and Blue. I wasn't in the mood to make something traditional, so I decided to make something with butterflies and flowers. I think the Red, White and Blue looks good in floral.

Today is the last day for the design team inspiration for the digital launch at Jessica Lynn Original. I've used the Winged One Butterfly digital stamp on my card. I printed several in an array of sizes, then colored them and fussy-cut the best sizes for the floral image. On the butterfly body I used gray liquid pearls to add some shimmer. For all supply details check out the list below. Thanks for stopping by and if you live in the United States I hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July!
