Let's get started !!

Here's my card for 

Butterflies and bugs! FUN! It's always working with
creatures. lol. I made a pop-up card following this
link for the tutorial. Naturally I seldom follow
exactly like I should, but it worked. Butterfly was
colored with Copic markers and I added some dots
for a "flying" tracer. lol. Thanks for stopping by
and checking things out. Be sure to visit all the
other blogs and leave a comment for a chance to win.

Stamps can be found in MFP Stamp Shop.
I used:

"Hello Butterflies"
"Spring Sayings"
"Scenic Selections"
