|Completed card honoring Monarch butterfly|
I keep reading about how the numbers of Monarch butterflies are dwindling. It would be a huge loss to not have this summer visitor around anymore.
The Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania featured this lovely creature on the cover of its latest magazine for members. I hated to waste the beautiful artwork so I decided to turn the photos into a card.
I punched circles out of the cover photos and then played with them for awhile to see how they would look as a semi collage. The first layout didn't work at all (see photo below) but the second one did (above).

It all sits nicely on a piece of green-striped corrugated paper that I found sitting in my paper stash.
This seemed like a fitting project to honor the Monarch, a favorite butterfly for so many of us.
