Virginia **Day 2**

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card by Virginia:

The bold colors on the butterfly really "pop" against the distressed background. I also love the dimension Virginia added, making the butterfly look as if she could just fly right off the card! And the little matching envelope is too fun!

Here is my take:


My card was also inspired by the beautiful teal color on this Hero Arts Sneak Peek.

Thanks for looking!
