All About the Butterflies

Hello, I hope you are all having a great weekend? This is my first day out of bed after my hospital treatment, so I still feel a little fragile. To start the day off gently, I have made this Butterfly card.

The main image consists of the word "Butterfly" in different languages, with small butterflies flying around. I coloured the whole image with my AP, and the small butterflies with my markers. I then stamped the image on some saffron card to cut out the two tags, and stuck them down on 3D pads. This was then laid on some coral and saffron card that had been wrapped with a ribbon and bow. The large butterfly was coloured with my AP and markers and placed on the large tag with 3D pads. To finish it off, I added the sentiment, two Swallowtail butterflies and gems on the insects bodies.

I am entering these challenges
