Cobalt Blue Butterfly

My heart goes out to everyone caught in the flooding disaster in Texas & the gulf coast. Hubby's son-in-law was born & raised in the Houston area & still has family & friends there.  So, so sad.   
I'm so lucky to have sweet blogging friends who send me die cuts, including C&9 Floral & Fauna.
For the last challenge I used the blossom, so for the current Anything Goes challenge at Where Creativity Meets C9 I'm using the gorgeous butterfly. It's colored with a sparkle blue Spectrum Noir pen which was also used on the edges of a dry embossed panel.  
Another sweet friend sent me the cute little gems I used for the body. Don't think I've ever used this sentiment from a 2009 Hero Arts set. My sister could use a hug right now & she loves blue & butterflies. Hopefully this will make her smile. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  4. Your sister will love this... So beautiful and perfectly created... My thoughts go to everyone affected too... We have had our fair share of flooding in my country over the years and it always breaks my heart... I'm fortunate is hasn't affected us, I don't think I could cope. Have a lovely day!

  6. I can see the beautiful blue glitter on the butterfly and it is so pretty. I've seen those colored glitter pens but never tried them. I say to myself, no, no, no I do NOT need them. Seeing it on your card is enough for me.
