Day 17: Sending Joy Your Way Card

I cannot put down this cute butterfly from the Brushed WOTG stamp set this week. I keep thinking I'm done, and then...I have to make another card with it. It's just too cute! This time I used the new sketch from Mojo Monday.
This time I added the big "Joy Captured" circle...but I didn't want my card to say that. So I masked off the captured but and added parts of the "Sending love your way" from Lifting Spirits. I used Heartstrings paper and Stickease as part of the card design - I don't have much left after all the pages and cards I did with this paper packet, but CTMH's #jrlcreativechallenge this week was to use Heartstrings, because it's going away at the end of March. Sob! I covered up the 2 on the StickEase with a little heart cut from a B&T scrap. And there's a bit of white shimmer trim peekin' out in my banner area.
I stamped over the Joy circle with Doodled Designs, and added hearts from that same set. I colored the hearts with a Shin Han marker and lightened them up with the blender pen. Hello, pretty butterfly!
On the inside I added a bit more doodling and a sentiment from Have a Happy Day. When you color with alcohol markers it always bleeds through to the back. So after coloring the hearts inside the card, I just flipped it over to the back and stamped the hearts shapes over the bleed through, so even the back of the card has a little somethin' somethin'.

 Tomorrow we will not be visiting with my friendly little butterfly... but something tells me I'm not quite done with that stamp yet!
