I have a rather simple card to share with you today that uses a new image from the Crissy Armstrong Digital Collection called Rose Butterfly and a sentiment from the Inspirational Sentiments set (from the Raindrop Echo Designs Digital Sentiments Collection). I thought these two worked perfectly together! Crissy's butterfly is just so intricate and beautiful - I fell in love with it when I saw it :)  I actually used my Copics (it's been a very long time) for this creation, but it's pretty much all covered by the Stickles, lol.

Images: Whimsy Stamps Rose Butterfly and Inspirational Sentiments
Medium: Copics
Paper: Memory Box
Accessories: Stickles, lace
 Tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities Petite Scalloped Large Circle, Making Memories Paper TrimmerATG adhesive gun


Here are some of the newest digital sentiments:
