Butterflies and Bows

     Good morning to you all..  It is a great day in sunny S. Florida.  I love living here.
     Today is my day to post for Tuesday Throwdown Cahllenge. Here is the address for the challenge for Tuesday Throwdown.:   Butterflies and Bows is the challenge.  So I have a variety of butterflies here on my card.  The large one is from Martha Stewart punch and the smaller ones are a die cut from Stampin-up.  I love this die cut and use it a great deal.  The image is from DeeDee Anderson and her shop is here:  She has some amazing images and you should really take a moment after your done on my site to pop over and check hers out.
     I colored this image with copics and am so pleased as to how it turned out.  I do love flowers and love to color them. (I added the second image the close up so you could see it better.)  I added the butterfly here so it would pop out from the rest.  The sentiment is from the internet and I can't remember who it is by, sorry about that.  I sure hope you will come down and play along with us this week at Tuesday Throwdown and see if you can win some prizes.  All the DT members have a card for your inspiration and this is one of them for you to use as your inspiration.  The ladies on the team are all very talented and unique in their own way, so you will get plenty of different ideas for a card to play along with us.  I really hope to see you crafters there.  Have a wonderful day and I hope you will leave me some love.  I appreciate it and read each and every one.
