Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Challenge 40

Hi there,
It's time for Challenge #40  at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.
As always the theme is Anything Goes.

Let me share my project with you.

The sponsors for the challenge are


I am using the image Freehand Butterfly 1  from A Day For Daisies. 
This butterfly choice comes with 2 images -
With this purchase you will receive two Digital Stamps of a lovely butterfly; 
one image is impressed with music notes and one without. 
I used the one without. 

 I decided to print the image out onto designer paper and 
I also decided to copy a dictionary page out onto card stock 
and then printed another butterfly image out onto that dictionary CS.

 Since the butterfly is a really open image it lends itself to mixed media of sorts. I decided that some stencil designs would be a perfect addition to the butterflies and to the background of the card, too. White paint worked well on the pink butterfly and alcohol markers was a perfect choice for the circles on the black & white butterfly.

Over the weekend I bought a new Tim Holtz Sizzix  Alterations die set. It is called Mixed Media #3. and I used the letters in the alphabet portion to add the sentiment.

The font on this alphabet set is really interesting and 
some letters are quite different and are a little hard to decipher.

I love this sentiment - "Hope is never lost."

: Pink CS, Purple CS, White CS, DP
