Time Out Challenge #81

My friend Anita made the most beautiful card for the current Time Out Challenge ... I just had to follow her gorgeous lead!

Here is the inspiration photo:



A very old, much loved, Martha Stewart punch did all the hard work for me ... and I had just the Copic markers to make my own colored paper, too!

For Time Out #81 - a few flutter-bys who thought it was about time I played along - literally!!

Wplus9 Doodle Buds sentiment, PTI cardstock, and that little clock again!
Copics:  R24, R37, R39 & RV25
 
 
Those lovely wings would be crushed in the mail ... I'll have to deliver these by hand - the best way ever!

You knocked it out of the park with this card, Michele! What a fantastic take on the Inspiration photo - it sure looks like a winner to me! You got all the elements and colors but made it totally your own! Love it!

Absolutely fabulous card, Michele. LOVE all the butterflies and how awesome you were able to color the paper. That clock die is so cool. And hand delivering the card? Wow...that's a LOT of driving to hand deliver it to me. But I'd welcome you with a huge hug and smile. ;)
