Butterflies

I started this card with a clear vision in mind.
It is NOTHING like that vision.
It's funny where things take you sometimes.
I am not a sketcher or planner (even though, as a teacher, I know I should be).  I just go with the flow :)
Supplies: Papers - Vinnie Pearce (HERE) and My Mind's Eye, Stamps - Hero Arts; Ribbon - PTI; Gems - Hero Arts.
P.S.  I warned you that you might see a lot of this text paper.  I love THIS digikit.

Well since you have to plan as a teacher, it's probably good that your hobby lets you go with the flow. Love the results! =)

I love the way you sewed the butterfly trail, and the reverse knot (with ends behind instead of in front) is SUUUPER cute!
