{Celebrate The Earth!}

                                           
april22-3



  Happy Earth Day! You could not ask for a more beautiful day then today, the perfect day to celebrate our beautiful planet! You may not know this but I am very much into nature, wild animals, trees, well you get the picture. This day holds a special place in my heart.  There is an old Indian proverb that goes

      "Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. - Tribe Unknown"

   To help celebrate Earth day I thought I would photograph my card outside. I created my card with two challenges in mind, first, this weeks Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger:


I cannot resist a challenge involving butterflies! I incorporated the butterflies, and the beautiful shades of pink and red in my card. I also love the way the  butterflies stand out as the focal point of the card and wanted to produce the same affect on my card. The butterflies are the Butterfly Trio die set from A Muse Studio. The wood grain patterned paper is by Echo Park. The sentiment is from the PTI set "Think Big Favorites #12". The second challenge I had in mind when creating this card is this weeks CAS-ual Friday sketch challenge:



To add an extra little "sumthin'" to my card I used a paper piercer to outline the die cut butterflies. I looooove the way that turned out!
I also want to remind you about the BLOG GIVEAWAY I have going on right now, you don't wanna miss your chance to win!

Well, I hope you like my card, and I hope that today you will take a moment to step outside and really look at the beauty all around. Earth Day, Every Day!
