Butterfly Framelits Birthday Card

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Sometimes What Brings You Stress Brings You Solace
Airplane travel can make me a bit nuts.  I travel quite a bit for work and getting on and off planes, sitting too close to people I don't know, dealing with delays, turbulence, unhappy passengers and staff can sometimes create a lot of stress.  So I found it incredibly funny to find that stress turned to solace when I found myself on a recent trip to San Francisco staying at an airport hotel!  The hotel looked out over the water and there was a walking path along the water where you could watch the planes landing and taking off.  So there I sat.  Watching the planes and the people coming and going.  The loud roar of the engines.  The miracle of flight as those huge masses of metal lifted gently into the air.  Sometimes what brings you stress can also bring you solace!
Today I am sharing a birthday card I created for Michael's mom.  I die cut watercolor paper and then used a combination of ink with water and a bit of shimmery acrylic paint to add dimension to the butterfly.  I hope you like it!
