Tuesday Trigger (take 2)

Again....I was inspired by this delicious dress from Moxie Fab World's Watercolor Butterflies 
 you color my world
Here is my "light" version of the trigger. You can see the first take in my previous post here.
I had fun creating the droplets of colors with distress inks and water. This trigger has so many excellent entries. Have fun checking them out!

My card reminds me of the flowering almond photo that I took two weeks ago. Can you spy a few butterflies? Sadly all the blooms are almost gone! I'm glad that I had captured this fleeting moment.
I will be back next with a guest design post! Can't wait to share!
