Distressed Friday Freebie Butterfly and Sunflower

I'm following a sketch :

so I tore top edge of my patterned paper, used the sunflower from Tiffany's blog, and added Sew Many Card's new Friday Freebie - a butterfly. I colored the butterfly and sunflower with colored pencils (RoseArt Golden Bronze; Crayola Burgundy, Blue, Gray, Yellow, and Heat Wave) then cut them out leaving a white border edge. Sometimes simple is better...esp. if you want to mail it (I worry about lumpy 'n' bumpy tearing the envelopes).

Challenges I'm entering in:
several challenges had the same theme - that just means I get to show off my cards to more people. :)

Alota rubber: Challenge #29 Distress It
Paper Sunday: Challenge #6 Distress
Belli Challenge: Butterflies & Dragonflies
Flutterby Wednesdays: Open Butterflies

Thanks for looking and leaving me a comment. I love reading all the comments you leave for me.
