Birthday Card Using Conie Fong "Leilani" with CTMH "Stitched Together Paper Pack"

Hello Friends!   It's summer here in Southern CA.  I did manage to ride my bike outside for 30 minutes before it got too hot for me.  I love being outside; so it has been a tough 3 months staying indoors with COVID-19.  I hope it ends soon; but it doesn't appear to be going away.  I watch the numbers daily and they continue to rise all across the world.  So scary.

I finally got my Mojo back.  It was lost for a while.  LOL!  I thought I had already colored this one; but found out that I printed it and forgot about it.  This is one of my favorites.  I used Conie Fong "Leilani" for this creation, using our gorgeous CTMH "Stitched Together" Paper Pack.  CTMH also has the same paper pack  with a sticker sheet if you like that set better.  Scroll down further and there is a photo on here showing this paper pack.

I have a hard time covering up the paper when it is this gorgeous.  I made my image smaller than I normally do; just so I could display the two butterflies.  LOL!  I love this paper pack.  The reverse side is a quilted look; so it is gorgeous as well.
