I had a request for a card or something to stand on a desk that had a butterfly or several with one rising up freeing itself. My daughter-in-law wanted something that she can see as herself breaking out of MS and flying free. This card went with the multimedia project I made (below the cup). This butterfly is one of many on the project. I am also showcasing my main project below this card.

It's very simple, but I rather like it.
I took a folder that opened from the top, put an 8 1/2 X 11 inch Sticky Canvas on the top, cut it down to about 7 inches wide and 9 1/2 inches long. I glued another folder on the inside of the first folder to strengthen it so this can stand on its own and it Does! I have never used canvas before, but used the acrylic colors directly on the sticky canvas, white, gray and sky blue to give a background of land and sky. Using my Cameo, I cut an Echo Park buttery and what I believe is a Silhouette butterfly numerous times. I took three Copic markers in yellows and reds. My daughter-in-law likes Autumn colors, so that's how I chose my colors. I'm happy with the results.
