Butterfly Kisses for Papercrafting Inspiration

Good Evening my Friends!
I should have been down in my cave earlier to share this creation with you but as luck would have it, I got busy with other things and time got away from me.  Oh dear ... well I'm here now and anxious to share!

My friend Diane (Nellie's Nest) introduced me to a fun challenge and today is my first time playing.  It's called Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Monday and this is Week Twenty-Two.

This is the inspirational magazine cover we are using this week.
Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays - Week Twenty-Two Inspiration Piece (image)

From this cover I drew much inspiration but I quickly knew what my first entry would be (yes I plan on doing more than one card for this challenge ... how could you not!!)  SO MANY wonderful visions and ideas are swimming around in my head!!

My eye was drawn directly to the flower & butterfly since I so love Mother Nature and all her beauty.  I went directly to the beautiful DCWV Mariposa matstack of papers for my card base.  This paper already has so much going on I simply added this Serendipity Stamps sentiment and a couple of K&Co 3d butterflies and my card is ready to send.

I'm really intrigued with the image of the bowl of eggs and the blue glass ... hmmmm wonder what I could create with that as my inspiration ... maybe tomorrow will produce something wonderful ... time will tell! 

But since it is nearly bedtime and I still need to clean up the kitchen (dang maid didn't show up again!  LOL!)  I'd better say my good nights and get back upstairs!

But before I go, here are a few other challenges I would love to enter into:
Loves Rubberstamps Challeng#69 - Have a Sentiment on the Front
Allsorts Challenge #223 - Butterflies
Anything Goes Challenge Blog - In The Garden/add some butterflies

As always my friends . . .
