Colorful Butterfly Birthday Card

Each year by the end of winter my eyes are starved for color! Where we live the world is shades of brown and gray, even the sky today. So I was ready for the bright colors at ColourQ Challenge #330:


My daughter is so busy with four kids, a good job, church and sports activities that she rarely looks at my blog, so here's the birthday card she's about to receive on Friday:



I used a bright red and yellow Basic Grey designer paper that I hoarded much too long. The butterflies are from a new CTMH set called "Your Beautiful Self." I colored them with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (Y222, R11, B262, GY235) because the fine tips are great for the tiny spaces on the small butterflies.  I added three sparkles on the three butterflies and three gold metallic epoxy hearts (Treasured Puffies).  My sets of three were deliberate for the Crafting for All Seasons #120 - Three of a Kind.

Thank you for visiting! If you, too, are tired of winter, be encouraged! Spring in the Northern Hemisphere will soon be here with its lovely colors!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
