I love butterflies,  I really enjoy going to butterfly houses and watching them fly everywhere.  I really think its unfair of nature to have given such a beautiful creature such a short life span.  My one son attracts butterflies,  I don't know why but they land on him and will stay with him until he shoos them away.  I have several pictures from his childhood of butterflies and dragonflies resting on his hair or shoulders.  Yep, Mother's Moments.

Stamped with MFT things butterflies and used their matching  die cuts.   Embossed with Versa and black powder. Colored with Tim Holtz Distress Markers,  glitter over wings.  Doily is from Spellbinders,  DP Basic Grey,  bling from stash.
