Love is Like a Butterfly

This week's challenge at the Heart Song Inspirations blog is to color on kraft cardstock and/or use lace on your project. I chose to do both because I've never colored on kraft, so it seemed like a challenge, and once the card idea came to mind, the lace was a no-brainer. I was a bit intimidated with the coloring on kraft, but I think it turned out really well. And I really like the effect of making the butterflies 3-D. I printed and colored 6 butterflies, cut them out, glued 3 down, and then glued the centers of the other 3 to the originals and pinched the wings with my fingers to make them stand out.
