Hawaiian Butterflies:

Good morning all - now how did it become Wednesday already??  Summer is in the air and just don't have as much time to devote to crafting as I would like.  It feels strange to come into my craft room only a few times a week but we must enjoy the sun while it lasts!

Speaking of nice weather, I have a warm and summery card to share with you.  I found this beautiful Hibiscus freebie and used a little magic to reproduce the image a few more times to make it "travel" up the side of my card.  I LOVE using digis as background design paper.

Card Ingredients:  Beccy's Place digi, DCWV and Recollections cardstock, Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch, EK Success Corner punch, Recollections pearls.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made this floral card for the following challenges:  Digi Haven - freebie floral, The Kraft Journal - summer with kraft, Paper Makeup - wings, Creative Monday - summer, Simon Says Stamp and Show - brown.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great Wednesday!
