Fly Framed Card

For this card, I dug into a box of butterfly-themed goodies I have in my stash and chose this House Mouse Designs clear stamp, pattern paper with clouds, and a chipboard frame with butterflies. I stamped and colored the image with colored pencils and then adhered first the image and then the pattern paper to the chipboard frame. Then I adhered the frame to some pale purple card stock and final adhered all that to the pink A2 card base. I thought it needed a little something more, so I found some adhesive chipboard letters to add the word "Fly" to the front. I wanted to spell out "Soar," but I didn't have any Rs left in the letter set😂. 

Challenges I'm entering: 

 House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge ( ATG with option to add a House Mouse friend other than a house mouse (ends 10/29/23) Top 3 Pick 10/30/23

Stamping Sensations: Autumn colors or ATG option (3/3; ends 11/1/23)

We Love Stamping: Inspiration board or ATG (There's a bird and a dog on the inspiration board, so having a mouse and butterfly on my card seems to fit with the idea of living creatures on the board, but if that's too loose an interpretation, please consider this ATG) (3/3; ends at the end of the month)
