Flight of the Butterflies

I have used another  great image from Outlaws CFC by Sandi Huggett  for the challenge over at 'Outlawz' called  Creative Freebie Challenge. The images to be used are from digital  images they have drawn. Entering the challenge enables you to receive the next set of images. Every two weeks they will send you two new images. For  this challenge  I chose the butterfly digital stamp and coloured it with Prismacolor markers and cut it out so I could make it dimensional..  For the center piece of  the card I brayed Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point  Stampin Up ink to some Whisper White paper.   I was trying to create a facsimile of a ski with butterflies flying in it. I added additional punched out butterflies  and a  'thinking of you ' sentiment.. The top layer of the card flips up and leaves room for a message to be written!
