Congrats square butterfly card






My little sister got engaged, grin.  Truth be known she's not a girly-girl, so I probably should make her some other card, but I was inspired by the Moxie Fab World square challenge and this week's Play Date Cafe colors, especially the butterfly in the top right corner and the photo mating.  I don't usually put sentiments on the inside, but I thought the PTI Happy Trails sentiment was perfect... and I couldn't fit it on the front :)  Since I colored in the Unity butterfly with water color pencils I'll enter this in the Young Crafters Unite new challenge, since I won a Simon Says Stamp gift certificate from them for a comment last week and I'm happy to report I've already spent it.  Woo hoo!

Materials: Unity Life is Fabulous butterfly, Waltzingmouse Stamps Frame It sentiment, PTI Happy Trails swirl and sentiment, PTI Guide Lines Grid Impression plate, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 1, cream card stock, water color paper, Core'dinations card stock, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Tumbled Glass, water color pencils, Versafine black ink, Fiskars corner rounder
