A Bevy of Butterflies!

In recognition of
Breast Cancer Awareness Month,
I made this layout using the prettiest butterfly stamp ever
and one of my favorite quotes!
 has many different styles of stamp images...
funny, cute, sincere, and insightful.
I loved these butterflies from
(part of the Sheena Douglas collection)
the very first time I saw them!
The proverb was taken from the internet.
I think it speaks volumes when it comes to the brave women who
face breast cancer every day!
"There, but by the grace of God, ..."
A side view showing the dimension I added to each butterfly.

I colored them with my alcohol markers.
Then, with the antenna and the Glossy Accents added, they really came to life!
This is definitely one of my all-time favorite layouts.
No personal photos, or even experiences journaled, but it simply reflects how I feel about the trials that one must be faced with when battling a horrible disease.
If you look closely, you will also see how I implemented a new embossing folder from Die'Sire!  More of that at Crafter's Companion later this week!
 I made the background layer more vintage by cutting and distressing the edges and inking it to appear more aged.

Paper:  Graphic45, "Botanicabella" 
Cardstock:  Bazzill

Thanks for sharing in this special project with me
and Crafter's Companion!
