Patriotic Butterflies

It's fun to sometimes use non-holiday images for holiday cards.  My sister loves butterflies, so I decided to surprise her this year with butterflies on her 4th of July card. The Memory Box Kaleidoscope Butterflies are embellished with red sequins & the sentiment is by an Oregon company called Peddlers Pack.  I'm adding this to the first Memory Box Challenge & SSS Wednesday.
The excessive heat here is setting records, so Fritz & I have to limit our walks.  My weekend to work & the air conditioning doesn't seem to reach in our office, but fortunately there's a little fan to save the day!  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  12. Love the colors on this one and it is so graphically pleasing too! Isn't it great that MB has a challenge now?! I am saying hello to all the fellow people I saw post that I used to do the IO challenges with...I have made a card in a number of months, so I was happy to be able to participate this time. Hopefully in the IO challenge too. :) Thanks for sharing.
