Flourishes In Pink

Good Morning crafters, what a beautiful Sunday morning!! I decided to get up early today so that I could spend the day making cards. I went to the school yesterday and painted my old green chalkboared with magnetic paint!! What a messy process, but I am so excited that a useless board will now be worth having. It gave me the idea that the wall in front of the crafting table should be painted with magnetic paint so that I can post some items without using tape or nails!!

This week the Flourishes Timesless Tuesday Challenge #131 is a recipe challenge: pink, one button, and lace. Now how could I pass making a card in my favorite color - pink? All three elements are my favorite, especially pink. I selected Butterflies & Blossoms. The flowers are called clematis and I learned they are a SW Colorado wild flower. I think they are gorgeous. I really enjoyed coloring this image, especially that butterfly.

Thanks for coming by. I hope you enjoy my card. Have a fabulous day!!

Pretty image and beautiful coloring. Love the lace trim also. Where I grew up clematis was very popular climbing on mailboxes or posts, very pretty flower.

Magnetic paint? I didn't know there was such a thing! Awesomesauce.
I love your colouring - the butterfly is stunning, and a perfect pop of colour against the pink :)
