Heartfelt Creations August Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to the August Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop. I made an A2 sized card this month using paper, stamps and dies from the Butterfly Medley collection. This is one of my favorite collections. The purples, oranges, greens, and blues are so beautiful for a late summer card. I used a card panel from the paper collection and adhered to a white cardstock base. I stamped my butterfly in Archival Black ink  on watercolor paper, and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I used Prima watercolors to color the image. When dry, I added some Stardust Stickles to the wings and adhered on the card.
The Hop starts 8am EST on Friday August 25th and closes Monday August 28th at 11.59pm EST.
The winner will be announced on the HC blog and on FB on Wednesday August 30th.  A random comment will be chosen to  receive a  $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.
Here is a list of blog hop participants:
