Happy Wishes And A Winner!

Sep21-1

  Hello friends and Happy First Day of Fall! It is going to be 92F today so it isn't feeling much like fall but hopefully the cooler weather will arrive eventually.  Today I have a card to share that I created with a few challenges in mind first, CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #71 - Fall Fun 




and  Lawnscaping  Challenge #42 - Getting Texty



To create my card I used two Lawn Fawn sets, Flutter By, and Lunar Lights. I colored my butterflies using Promarker fall colors.  I used Ivory Naturals card stock by Stampin up, and the text background is "Dearest Jane" card stock by Papertrey Ink.

Lastly I am entering my card in the Moxie Fab World Card Design Handbook Movement Challenge. My fluttering butterflies and the text print behind them creates "movement" for your eyes to follow.   I hope you like my card!
