Light It Up Blue for Autism Awareness Blog Hop

Welcome, friends! I am popping in to share my card for the  Light It Up Blue for Autism Awareness Blog Hop. 
This blog hop is to show our support to those in our stamping community and beyond whose lives have been touched by Autism. The hop is organized by two uber talented stamping friends- Tenia Nelson and Veronica Zalis. I want to give these two ladies a shout out as well. Over Facebook, I have the joy of watching their sons trying/experiencing new adventures and events. These boys are precious and are a JOY! The theme of this hop is to create "something blue"

We have so many fantastic sponsors that have shown their support for Autism Awareness and you can see the complete list here. If you would like a chance to win a prize from one of these fabulous companies leave a comment on this blog, and any of the other blogs participating in today's hop! Winners will be chosen at random and will be announced on Monday April 6. 

Now here is the card for today's hop
smile
 This happens to be one of the 9 cards that I made for my Stamp Clinic over StampNation. I used the stamp set Happy Place from Verve.  I used Peerless Watercolors. I worked on watercoloring each butterfly first, and then I let it sit on my desk for a while. In the end, I decided to color the background in blue with a mixture of bright pink. I didn't really have a plan as far as how the design went...I simply let creativity be my license.

You can be part of this wonderful blog hop by linking up your project ( the theme is BLUE). There are many sponsors for this blog hop; you really don't want to miss it!
Thank you for stopping by!
