The Beauty of Wings

Hello there!  I hope you are having a good day! I am starting to learn that there is beauty in having wings and only when you are free can you grow and live in peace.   My family have been going through a lot of changes and we are finding that the things that we thought were so IMPORTANT are miniscule in the scheme of the universe.  My hubby lives by the motto "if you won't remember it or care about it in a year, don't get worked up by it!"  Gosh he is so smart!  I married him because he grounds me and I give him wings lol. 

Today's card is a CAS for me (anyways)and designed for Challenge #392 over at Crafty Creations Challenges.  Our generous sponsor is Morgan's Artworld where the prize will be the same 3 images that design team inspired your with.   I made a background by swiping distress oxides across watercolor paper and then spritzing with water and heat setting.  I colored the butterflies with copic markers, stamped my sentiment and added a few sequins.  Even though this is a simple card, I find it stunning!  I hope you do too?  My prayer for you is that you metamorphasize into your butterfly and find your wings!

Products used:  white cardstock, Canson xl water color paper, Distress Oxide Ink ripe persimmon/mustard seed/dried marigold/abondoned coral, Copic markers, gold irridescent sequins, Versafine Onyx black ink, bertech foam tape, art glitter glue, Brother cut n scan, Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Perspective stamp set, and  F wings Morgan's Artworld Digital Store
