Etsy Inspired Challenge #106 {Pegasus Maiden}

Hi! 


This is my first entry in the  EtsyInspired Challenge!  The last few weeks have been hectic, and I feel extremely lucky to have been able to put something together for the challenge. The shop to check out this week is the Pegasus Maiden's. I can almost guarantee that you will find inspiration there.


I have been forced to move around quite a bit as a military spouse. As time goes by, I have come to realize how incredibly lucky I was growing up. I grew up in a secluded, rural, Central Florida setting surrounded by Sabal Palms and Live Oak trees, yet it was a short drive to one of the most beautiful stretches of beach on Florida's east coast. 


I have wonderful childhood memories of butterflies fluttering above the tall grass in the fields which surrounded our home. As a little girl I loved to chase those butterflies, catching them for a brief time then watching them fly away after releasing them . I guess that it's no surprise that I often find myself incorporating butterflies into my cards.


So, for your enjoyment,  here is my card for the challenge! 




Thanks for stopping by! So happy to be playing they have an awesome sponsor this week which is Schlosser Designs.  I love love love their products!!!! Have a good week!
Hugs and Blessings!
