Butterfly Blessings

A friend of mine graciously gave me some of her stamping supplies she no longer needed.  Among the goodies was this pretty butterfly stamp from Inkadinkado.  I paired it with butterfly patterned paper from Stampin' Up!, and added a Verve sentiment, to create this thank you card for her.

Verve Joy For The Journey sentiment stamp ; Inkadinkado Big Butterfly stamp; Nuvo Drops iridescent glitter glue; Stampin' Up! patterned papers

It was hard to capture the iridescent glitter I put on the butterfly, always a challenge to photograph!

The way I've colored it reminds me of the Adonis Blue butterfly (polyommatus bellargus). (credit) Only the males are this beautiful blue.  

Colossians 1:16
For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.

Enjoy this day! 😊

I'm never sure about coloring butterflies, but you did a perfect job on this one. After looking at Pinterest I'm convinced you can color a butterfly any old which way and it will resemble one in nature. Love all those older Inkadinkado stamps. Beautiful card, Colleen. Sorry I've been MIA. Too much going on here. Thank you for a lovely visit today. I enjoyed all the gorgeous cards I've been missing. One of my faves is the deer card. Just something about it.
