For You Butterfly ~ Sweet Sunday Sketch

Well, not that I want to start a countdown, but I only have 2 more weeks of doing whatever I want :) Then I will be back setting up my classroom getting ready for a new class come September 8th. It's been a blissful summer and so I will enjoy these next 14 lazy days. I know I am truly blessed to have this large amount of time off and now that my son is grown and at university, I have lots of time to myself to cultivate and enjoy my passions. Today's card is another one based on Karen's Sunday sketch. Multiple panels are getting less scary and give me a chance to dig through my scraps bag, pick out a few gems and play with mixing them. I love the PTI raspberry fizz dp. You can never go wrong with it IMHO. I have been on a pink and kraft kick ever since the fleur de lis run last week. And the butterflies are back! I'm having a premonition that these and the button bouquets will be replaced with poinsettias once Christmas nears :)
