  1. so pretty!
    oh I dont know,it was long time ago..

  2. Love the ink blended background and pretty butterflies!
    We have some pretty spectacular sunsets here in northern CA!

  3. Living near the California coast, we see a lot of beautiful sunsets. I see the San Francisco Bay from my craft room window and get a front seat view!

  4. Cute and colorful butterfly card and pretty sunset. I enjoyed sunsets in the Florida Keys.

  5. Ohhhh your blending is so so pretty! Perfect for these colorful flutterbies. So many sunsets are beautiful here in Mi, buf I think the most beautiful was when we took a sunset ride under the Mackinac Bridge about 5 years ago... spectacular.

  6. You did a great job blending those bright colors, looks beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble!

  7. Wow, I LOVE this sweet little butterfly card with the beautiful background. My favorite sunsets were in Hawaii...but I see a lot of great ones everywhere.

  8. Aaaaw, butterflys are so adorable, love the sunset background and sentiments. Whimsical and fun card. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and Stinkin Inkers.

  9. Meghan, what a lovely card to capture your Michigan sunset colors! Looks like you might have used an alcohol ink on glossy paper to blend the background? Great sentiments to use for Double Trouble's "It's Your Day" challenge!!! -Donna

  10. So sweet and colorful, Meghan! As I get older I seem to enjoy every sunset but perhaps the ones I have seen on Hawaiian beaches have been the most memorable. Thank you for joining us at Double Trouble Challenge #84.

  11. Adoreable card. Love the butterflies.
    In Croatia.
