Butterfly Thinking of You

Hello, everyone!  Thank you for your prayers and positive thoughts for Nova Scotia!  We are okay!  Some parts of Nova Scotia, as well as other provinces in Atlantic Canada, sustained significant damage, but we experienced only a small amount of damage to our property.  We feel very blessed.  We were without electricity for only 10 hours, and we lost our telephone and internet service for about 28 hours.  We are relieved it is over but continue praying for others who are still impacted by Hurricane Fiona.  

Today I'm sharing my card for Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge 173, which is Spin the Butterfly Wheel with W for Window Card.  This is a new card style for me, and it was fun!

I followed Mrs. A's instructions in her Window Card tutorial.  The colours I chose are Wheat, Watermelon, and Wild Blue Yonder, along with the theme of Wood.  The wooden butterfly was part of a prize I won in a previous challenge of Mrs. A's (thank you!).  I added a die-cut butterfly (free with magazine) behind the wooden butterfly.  The patterned paper is from MME Sky's the Limit, and I stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts. 

I was also inspired by the following 9 challenges, for a total of 10:
DL.ART September Linky AG UE
Double Trouble 121 Punch it Out (Thing1 Dies, Thing3 Wood Butterfly, Thing2 Use Your Stuff Challenge) 2/4

Through the Craft Room Door Sept. 13 AG 4/4
Use Your Stuff 467 Wood or Woodgrain
Word Art Wednesday 561-562 AG w Uplifting Sentiment wk2 2/5

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a peaceful day!

I love the type of card fold and your card showcases the very pretty butterfly beautifully. Love the pretty papers you used. Glad you endured the storm without too much damage. Even being without power is problem and can cause damages. Stay safe thru the clean up. Prayers to all those who lost so much. Hugs, Lena

Beautiful job on that fold, it's one I have never tried. Those butterflies match each other perfect. Glad you are safe and well with minimal damage.

SO happy the know that the storm is over and you are well! I think rain will arrive, be patient for this.

Have not seen this fold before, very creative and pretty. There is another challenge you may want to share it with... a challenge that is an Anything Goes with Fun Folds at Creative Creases.

Like how you used a wooden embellishment for your woodgrain. Thank you for sharing with Double Trouble and sharing your special drink with us.
