Up, up and away ...

It's been a busy day, but I just had to end it by making a card.

'Up, up and away' is the theme for 4 crafty chicks 102. I chose a corner of a 12 x 12 DCWV Mariposa stack paper, adding stamped butterflies (the small one is Hero Arts, but the others are unknown makes that I've had for ages), coloured with copics, with turquoise gems added.

The background paper was already green and turquoise, so I just kept to that colour theme for Paper minutes 230: turquoise and lime with butterflies.
