Ahhhh. So soothing. So pretty and girly and sweet. So SIMPLE! This card turned out BETTER than I imagined it. Wow. That hardly ever happens.
And now for a word about butterfly butts. I know lots of stamp designers and stampers have dots (poo) or swirls (gaseous farts) coming out of butterfly butts. I personally have used this technique for indicating the movement of butterflies (and dragonflies) myself, but every time, I cringe a bit. Am I the only person who finds this mildly disturbing? I very deliberately placed my big butterfly over the swirl so it would NOT look like the butterfly was farting curly foliage. The shadow sort of hides how the swirl appears under his wing, thus indicating he's flying over foliage, not farting it.
Or do I just need therapy for being too AR? Get it? AR? Haa, haa, haa.
I think I just answered my own question. Sorry to have bothered you.
