Overjoyed for You

Hello!  Ever have a song of joy and gratitude in your heart, and when you make your art, it shows? The day I made this card -- and then the day I wrote the post about it, which were months apart -- reflect the joy in my heart at those times.


I had just received a juicy ol' bag of scraps from my Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and it included this fringe-y strip of cardstock, and some butterflies, and a few flowers.  I threw them together and it ended in this happy card.

The pink butterfly had been white, with a strip of floral washi tape on it.  I customized it by running a pink Copic marker over the white parts, to tie in with the flower below.


Had to add some pearls too, 'cause I just think they make nearly everything better!
