Flutterby - Butterfly at Squigglefly

Wow that title is kind of a tongue twister!!  LOL!
Hello friends and thanks for coming to visit me today!!!

The new challenge at Squigglefly this week is to 'Add a Butterfly' to your card.
It could be a die cut, a brad, sticker, in your image/paper ...
Well, you get the picture!!

 How cute is this image by Carmen Gamble called 'Easter Peeps'!

 I wanted to bring focus not only to my butterfly for the challenge but to this adorable image, so I tried a little different coloring/design scheme.  After printing, cutting and coloring my original image, I laid it on another large piece of white card stock and began coloring the grass and sky with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Then I matted each panel with black card stock and POPPED up the focus image using pop dots.
The cute bunny on the left appeared to be looking up at 'something' so I decided it must have been a butterfly that had his attentions!  Looks like his buddy is trying to figure out exactly what is popping out of that egg!!!  What fun!

I really like how this card came together!
Even though the WHITE SPACE around the edge looked just fine ... 
it bothered me so I grabbed my TH black distress marker and started doodling!
{sigh}  that's better!!!  LOL!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and please, won't you come join in
our challenge fun at Squigglefly?  At least take a quick pop over and check out what my team mates have created to inspire you today!  They would sure appreciate it!!
Have a GREAT day!!

Darlene this is such a sweet card. I love your doodling around the perimeter of the card. The butterfly is the perfect thing for the bunny to be looking at!
