As the weather is getting warmer here in the UK we are seeing more and more bees and butterflies.  A welcome sight.  We are doing no-mow May in our garden and in fact are going to be doing no-mow for ever for a large part of our new garden here in Wales - developing a wild area full of wild flowers for the bees and the butterflies.  Already after only a few weeks there are lots of wild flowers showing themselves and I'm looking forward to seeing what comes up next.

My card today uses a stencil from Visible Image - ~I used some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks in Peacock Feathers, Fossilized Amber and a touch of Chipped Sapphire to create the butterfly.  The added butterflies were from an Aall & Create stamp set #47 which were inked in Versafine Clair Tulip Red and covered with a touch of Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.  The words are from the same stamp set inked in Versafine Clair Warm Breeze.  I doodled around the edge with a fine pen.  This is my first attempt at doodling on the edges of cards - I may give it another go as I quite liked the effect.

I'm adding this into the following challenges

Try It On Tuesday - Butterflies 
Butterfly Spot Challenge - Butterfly plus two colours 
Global Design - Beautiful Bugs
International Art & Soul - 3 of anything - 3 butterflies
