A Monarch Butterfly Stamp

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge are combined here using one of my new favorite stamp sets that has a Monarch butterfly in it. This is my new favorite because my somewhat new perennial garden was filled with Monarchs along with other beautiful butterflies this week. At one point there were probably 50 or more Monarchs. That is a success to me because that was my purpose to feed bees and butterflies. 

Here is my tribute to the butterflies that brought me so much pleasure and joy this week. For that, I am grateful!

Supply List:
  1. Grateful Heart Cardmaking Stamp Set
  2. Watercolor Pencils
  3. Value Card Pack
  4. White Daisy cardstock
  5. Black cardstock
  6. Lemon cardstock
  7. Nectarine cardstock
  8. Gold-flecked Gems

Thanks for stopping by!
