Edwin with Butterflies

Happy Saturday everyone.

It is hard to believe that it is taking me so long to send you another post. I was working on a card but was not done with it and so I wrote a different post... I guess it was not meant to be for by the time that I was just about done, the system went down. I was NOT going to start over. Has that ever happened to you??

Anyways, I have been working on a birthday card for my grandson for the past few days. I kept changing my mind on what I wanted to do but in the end, I feel it has turned out pretty well. It reminds me of him, since he is 5 years and love to run and play on the farm.

I made it 3D so that it looks like he is running in a field of grass and flowers, chasing butterflies. I inked around the edges of the wings and put a little glitter on the wings of the butterflies so that they stand out a bit more. I inked and cut out three layers of grasses and used pop dots so that they stand out, also had to use pop dots on Edwin.
