Butterflies: You Make Me Smile

Happy Monday!

While most people are heading off to work Monday is my day off, ahhhh, day off :) So I spent sometime creating last night this week's colors from The Play Date Cafe. 


Now my first thought was to bust Hero Arts neon inks again but then I remembered a fabulous card I had seen on the super talented Danielle Daws blog. She used Christmas ornaments but I loved the layout so I decided to put my own spin on it. P.S. Her coloring is far more fabulous :)


I masked the area I wanted to stamp in then drew my border lines with a ruler. I stamped and masked the butterflies until I was happy with how they looked. I colored with my copics and added details with my white gel pen. I thought the sentiment was a perfect fit because, well, CAS, bright colors, and butterflies do make me smile :) Oh and stickles, stickles make me smile too, so I added them also lol. 

Thanks for stopping by! Hope your Monday is chock full of smiles :)
