RIC #12--Take 2!

After making my first inspired card for the Runway Inspired Challenge (see here) , I can't help making a 2nd card. I was not terribly in love with the 2nd one. You can see it here.
So I made my 3rd card which will be my 2nd entry for the challenge!

The inking of the butterfly came from...you guessed it, alcohol inks! The droplets in the background are from copic markers and Perfect Pearl Dimensional Glue (love that stuff)!
Thanks so much for allowing me to share my obsession the joys of card-making!

Lastly, here is a fun photo of David and his two best childhood friends before the prom! They know each other since preschool days! You can see the "excitement" from David's smiley face :)

Thanks for stopping by!
note: this card and the 2nd card were featured in (Lawn Fawn Flickr Friday).

Wow Virginia! I love this card! It is perfect for the challenge and every bit of it rocks perfection. And that is an adorable pic of your son and friends.

Love your pretty card! I've had this set since March and I've only used it once! Love this photo of David and the girls, at his wedding make sure to use this! Or if he ever brings any horrible girls home use this to scare her "You seem like such a nice girl I wan you to know the truth!" LOL! :> He looks so happy!
