Black, white and blue all over....



Happy Friday! If you think you have already looked at this card.... you have... sort of... Last week I used this image from ODBD. I decided to use a more muted palette on today's card. I simply sponged the background with a soft gray and let the butterfly catch the eye. I submitted this card for a challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. Check it out here. This card was designed as a sympathy card. I wanted something a little more subdued but upbeat. Here's hoping you have a wonderful weekend.
