Love is Like a Butterfly

Today's card is one that I made for this week's MTME Pretty Patterns sketch - we are on week 18 already!  I love the sentiment, "Love is like a butterfly - it goes where it pleases and pleases whereever it goes."  My daughter loved butterflies and told me that she would send me butterflies from heaven so now I think of her every time I see one.

The butterflies on this card are from Tending the Garden digi set.

I took the butterfly and flipped it and saved it as a separate image so I can print them up going in either direction.  I then colored them with copics and cut them out.

The sentiment is from Chase Your Dreams digi set.  I cut it out using Spellbinders Beaded Ovals and sponged the openings using 'spun sugar' distressed ink.

I used paper from the following digi paper packs: Serenity, Cheerful Chirps and Fresh Flowers

I used Borders, Fanciful Flourishes by Cheery Lynn Designs and Magnolia DooHickeys Leaf and Swirls for the white swirls and leaves. 

The flowers were made using My Favorite Things Dienamics Mini Rolled Roses.  I love making these cute little flowers.

Here's this week's sketch - I hope you will play along!
