Twofer Card Challenge #29

Well would you look at that?!! Huh! Who knew that the number of today's Twofer post, 29, would exactly match my age, hahahahahahahahaha!?! Okay, I might be fibbing just by a few years...or more, but right this moment, I'm feeling 29 (don't worry though, it won't last....too many projects to do!). I hope you're feeling a #29 Twofer Challenge today. And boy, do we have a good one just waiting for you! It's (drumroll please....) Butterflies!!!

How perfect is that for a summertime theme?! I've noticed a huge variety of butterflies in my flowerbeds this year, and they sure have a way of lifting your heart and spirits just by watching them flutter around. And I've got a pair of cards with a "flutterby" or two on them to show you:

Both cards used Ellen Hutson's Everyday Doodles butterfly. It's such a sweet image, don't you think?!

For this first card, a birthday card for one of the granddaughters, I started with an MFT wonky die cut panel, and gave it a sponging over in blues. I used a total of three EH sets on this card. Except for the hearts, all images are die cut and the clouds are popped up a bit. I used Copics to color, and off it went to Lily.

My second card is a sympathy card. 

I found a decent sized scrap of green polka dots, and had originally planned to use the cut-out part on a white base. I liked it better this way, so using some DO inks, to create a soft background, I went with this design. I added the sweet little EH butterfly, which represents resurrection, and the sentiment is from Verve. Pretty straight forward, and I was able to make two completely different designs in no time at all.

Now I know you have butterflies in your stamp/die/stencil collection, which means I'll be seeing you in the gallery, right?! Right! Be sure to head over to The Twofer Challenge and see all the incredible designs from my teammates, and our guest designers, KT and Barb! And as always...
