Blue butterfly tree

Do you ever see something that catches your eye and you can't forget it?  This is what happened to me.  I saw a pic of butterflies clustered all over a tree.  I wanted to do something like that. I never could seem to find the right tree.  I punched out the butterflies and stored them away.  This is my time to use up a lot of things in the P.O.T.D.  so I determined to use the butterflies.  Then I remembered a pic I took the very first day I got my camera.  Since that day I learned how to size the photos and so that is what I did.  I also had a small scrap of this gorgeous paper that blended so nicely with the trees.  You may have to click on the pic to see the raised butterflies.  They are punched from paint chips.
I wanted to include a pic of the original idea but blogger won't let me include it since it is a document and not a picture.  Maybe there is a way to do it but I don't know how.  Awe well, se la vie.
Have a Blessed day.
Where there is a will there is a way!! lol  Blew up the pic on my screen and took a pic of it and voila here it is.
Thanks for sticking with me through all this.  lol
