Catching butterflies

I've realized that I need to start coloring  more stamps that haven't touched ink before -- I have no excuse now, after recently "retiring" from my job of 34 years.   Hopefully, I'll be able to devote more time to my love of card-making, along with entering challenges to add a bit of "interest" to the hobby.
On that note, this creation will be in the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks (anything goes)
Craft your Passion (summertime fun)
Dream Valley (flowers)
Digi Choosday (blooms)
Crafty Bloggers Network (summer fun)
A Random Fan (anything goes)
Glitter 'n Sparkle (butterflies)
Inky Impressions (anything goes)
Love to Scrap (anything goes)
Open Minded Crafting Fun (last of summer)
Tuesday Throwdown (anything goes)
Whoopsi Daisy (girly)
Kraftin' Kimmie (anything goes)
Delightful Sketches (layer it)
Cute Card Thursday (anything "cute" goes)
Crafter's Cafe (punches and dies)
Crafty Creations (use from stash - candi dots/flowers)
Digi Stamps 4 Joy (circles)
Fresh Brewed (glitter)
