Your Wings Are Ready

Hello Friends

I have a lovely butterfly card for you today inspired by article of clothing. My husband bought me lovely butterfly jammies (pyjamas) for Christmas. I LOVE them so much. They are the kind that when you put them on they are just super comfy and you want to live in them ha! Anyway I loved the pattern on them too. A collaboration of different butterflies coloured in pink with a touch of grey. I thought this would make a great card.

I got out some of my favourite Unity butterfly stamps to create a similar pattern.  I used my distress inks to paint the butterflies and background. 

I really love the combination of the colours once it was dry I stamped the word butterflies all over it with silver ink. I backed it on to some glitter paper and then a grey card base. I added some glitter to each butterfly. Finally I printed out a sentiment that I love to add to my card.

~ Your time as a caterpillar has expired. Your wings are ready. ~ 

It is time my friends to shake off the old and fly into the new. Whatever that may be for you in 2015, have the courage to use your wings. Be brave and FLY!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.
