A Pink Butterfly

Oh, this summer has been flying by!  I've taken a break from posting
cards to just enjoy our short summer here in Wisconsin.  I really liked
how this card turned out, and it qualifies for three challenges.  I am
entering it at CASology for the cue word of "running."  I used a 
running stitch.  I really liked this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  
It's CAS and monochromatic for the challenge at The Paper Players.
I realize it's fairly close to Jen's card, I hope that's okay.
I will be giving it to my Mom for her birthday, and her favorite
color is pink.

Paper: PTI White, SU Pink Pirouette & Regal Rose
Dies:  PTI Stitching Lines & Life is Beautiful
Additional Supplies:  DMC Embroidery Floss #'s 225, 602, 961, 962, 963

Thanks so much for stopping by!
