Everyday Butterflies

Wow...it seems like so long since I've posted. It's not that I haven't had cards to share, just not a lot of extra time to sit down and focus on them. Anyone else have this issue?

The card I have for you today uses one of my favorite dies: Beautiful Butterflies. In the Sale-A-Bration catalog, they paired this die with the Fresh Vintage Stamp Set and Everyday Enchantment DSP & Brads. They are a match made in heaven.

The design behind the Butterfly was created by coloring directly on the floral stamp with the Poppy Parade and Lucky Limeade markers. *Hint* Give it a little puff of breath when you're done coloring to make sure it's moist and ready for stamping.

The layers on the butterfly are just yummy. The flower was stamped in Poppy Parade and trimmed up with some snips. They were adhered together with an Everyday Enchantment brad. I chose one with a hint of blue to add a pop of color.

To finish it off, I trimmed down the banner from the Take it to Heart set. It fit perfectly on the top layer. It Some of these items are only available through Sale-A-Bration purchases. Be sure to get those 'Must Have' items before they're gone. They can be yours for Free with a $50 order.
