CC2 #2: Butterfly Faux Patina

Hi everyone,

In these super busy days, I almost haven't any time to join any challenges. But I made ​​some time to participate in Compendium of Curiosities and Our Creative Corner. I had to make a card for my parents and these challenges gave me the opportunity to join in. I kept the card very simple and I think that's why I love it.







For CC the challenge is to use the Faux Patina technique. I deeply enjoy all the techniques that are in Tim's new book!
And for OCC the challenge is to use butterflies. Butterflies are my favorite insects. Most are so colorful and cheerful as they flutter around. They remind me of spring and warm summer days. Can't wait till the skies and flowers are full with those lovely creatures!


Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra
