Birthday Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "Butterflies" new image

Hello friends!   I hope everyone is doing well.  It is hot here in Southern CA. What is the weather where you are?  Summer? Winter? Hot?  I would love to hear what is going on in your part of the world.

It is time for another Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post and I am using her new image "Butterflies".  I have been creating a lot of cards with butterflies lately.  It seems to be the time of year for all the artist's to think of Butterflies.  LOL!  I love them; so I can never have too many of them.
