Blue Swallowtail - Challenge 209 LNS Feeling Blue

Actually, I have been feeling blue lately.  A lot of negative energy has been directly my way, and without going into details I have been feeling "down".  I feel a bit like the Swallowtail card that I made for the LNS challenge this week  - only half a wing works.
Here is the card:

The swallowtail was stamped with Versa mark and embossed with black embossing powder.  It was then colored with various shades of blue markers- Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Tempting Turquoise, Bashful Blue and Pacific Point.  After it was colored, I cut the Swallowtail out, and mounted only half of it onto the Bashful Blue cardstock embossed with the Honeycomb folder - so only the left wing one is free.

Stamps: Swallowtail, Sweetly Said
Inks: Versa Mark, Various blue SU markers, Pacific Point
Papers: Pacific Point, Bashful blue, Whisper White
Accessories: Black embossing powder, Word window punch, Modern word Label Punch, 1/4" Pacific Point stitched ribbon, Honeycomb folder

What a gorgeous butterfly Maria. Sorry to hear you are not 100%. It's been that way this winter for lots of people. I for one am ready for Spring ! Take care & I hope the negative energy leaves, Shirleyx

I knew if I waited long enough you would come up with it. I have been waiting to see what you could do with this large awkward looking stamp. I knew you could do it and was worth waiting for.l It makes the card awsome. And I love the blue color of the butterfly. But blue belongs on this butterfly not on you. Hope you are feeling like you have a lift under your wings soon. Another great card Maria.
