Old Wives Tale - Butterflies

Did you know that there is an Old Wives Tale that three butterflies together mean good luck?  When I saw 

Simon Says Stamp and Show an Old Wive's Tale!, I was curious to find a fun tale using butterflies! This is what I made based on the tale.  Anyway, I used a sketch I found on Stacy HW's challenge at Sketches 4 All, and I used Doris' idea of have three ribbons/trims, using at least one in an unusual way! How fun! I doubled stamped the butterfly-first with Jenni Bowlin yellow paint and then with some CTMH Hollyhock ink.  The three trims/ribbons:  1) yellow at bottom, Crate Paper; 2) unusual way 1:  butterfly antennae, Crate Paper; and 3) unusual way 2:  made a ribbon flower.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today! Please leave a comment to let me know you were here!!!
Thanks, and have a great day!
