Imagine This : Grass

This is today's theme - Day 104 - over at 365 Cards.
I remember doing this sort of card about 18 months ago, so delved into the dusty corners of my mind to retrieve as many bits as I could remember.
The card stock is from my stash...yes! blue & green should be seen :-)....and I cut the green piece with my Fiskars cutting wheel, not very cleverly.
The rubber stamp I used for the grass is a flourish by Dawn Bibby which I stamped in Adirondack 'Meadow'
The butterfly is by Funstamps which I stamped in Adirondack 'Red Pepper' and 'Ginger' adding misc. pearls in brown to the body and red to the centre of the wings.
The sentiment by Stampabilities was stamped in 'Meadow' too.
I added the flight path of the butterfly by hand with an 03 drawing pen and topped the edge of the grass bank with a green Marvy Le Plume pen.
Job done...:-)
That's enough for today, methinks, off for a cuppa and bed and read my book [Harry Potter]...Night-Night!!
