Happy Friday, is your bbq ready for July 4th?  Cause it is next on the calendar, lol.  I have been doing a lot of my own embellishments lately, it gives me an added challenge and moves me closer to my dreams.  The butterfly is one of my line drawings, I colored with copics, then scanned in and printed it out, I used 2 on this card, one a tiny bit bigger (the one underneath) to give it dimension and then popped it a little.  The frame is from "Storybook" Cricut cart, I used small gold brads in the holes. The sentiment tile is a "Stampinup" punch. The background papers are also mine.  The flower was cut from fabric with the "Spellbinders" Blossom 1 die and then instead of rolled I gathered it with thread as in a yoyo flower, added a button and beads.  The leaf was handcut and colored with copics.  Inside the card says, "...for the moment, because, oh how they do flutter-by."

Scanning in your images also gives you the option of getting a nice finished inside to the card, most printers will allow you to flip or mirror your image for printing, usually listed under printing preferences under the advanced options.

Have a great weekend, keep cool and most of all enjoy, cause these moments are fleeting. Hugs
