Pink Butterflies on Gray


Bright pink butterflies on a three-windowed frame.  I like the complex butterfly shapes on the simple frame outline.

Like yesterday's card, this one is for Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps midweek challenge, to make "Miss You" cards for our heroes to send to loved ones at home.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink soft stone (light gray), hibiscus burst (medium pink), and raspberry fizz (dark pink). 
  • Dies are Papertrey Ink take three and heart-2-heart #10.  The small butterfly shape has antennae like the large one, but I trimmed them off to layer for this card.  
  • I used a pink 0.3 Copic multiliner to draw the dotted lines on the butterflies.
  • The sentiment "Miss you" is computer-printed in pink ink with Apple Chancery font. 
Created for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." (228)
