Happy Saturday

Happy Saturday! The weatherman wasn't very good at predicting the weather today but that's really no surprise. But the good news is that I am posting from Baby Creek! My DH figured out how to make his phone a hot spot so I can get Internet out here where previously we couldn't. So I'll be able to share more often on the weekend as long as the connection works.
 
I made this card for a college student who I worked with for 4 years at IU. I helped hire her and she's been the best! She graduated last week and we won;t be co-workers anymore but she has a job and is starting a new life.... and taking flight. I thought this card would be appropriate. The butterflies, all of them, are from a stamp set from Penny Black called Free Flight. I stamped the solid butterflies in various colors and the outline butterfly I stamped with Memento ink and colored with colored pencils. The background paper is from Simon Says kit, I think it was April's kit. I layered the image and sentiment. I was really pleased with how this one turned out.
I am entering these challenges:
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by today!
