Butterflys Fly Away

Hey, how have you been? I've been working a ton of hours and had no time to post anything. Now there are probably 1000 things I ought to be doing besides making this card but I just had to be me for a few minutes!

I need to make some cards to send to DD while she is away at Girl Scout Camp. I started with today's Sketch Challenge. I wanted to use the "giggle" sentiment with this little cutie. Then I guess its getting late and I'm getting slap happy: I then started to wonder what she was giggling about. How about a butterfly on her head? I will also enter this into the Club Anya Song Inspiration Challenge. The song? Miley Cyrus has a song called Butterflys Fly Away and also Party in the USA says "Butterflys Fly Away" and I thought either of the lyrics to those songs would be appropriate for DD going away to camp.

This image was colored with Prismacolor Pencils.

The sky is DP with a bit of sponging (the white was just too bright). The grass is some really old DP that I can't remember where I even got this. There's a little fence punch and some butterflys with White Prismacolor pencil accents. The trick to getting those clouds and fence to match up all the way across....build the scene as a 4 x 5.5 scene and then cut it to fit the sketch. When you put it back together, everything will match up.

Stamps: The Greeting Farm Summer, The Greeting Farm Anya Says
