Butterfly Card



I just love this stamp set by stampin' up!. You can do so much with it and when I was trying to decide what to use for this color challenge at Color Throwdown, Lavender Lace, Old Olive & Elegant Eggplant, as soon as I came across this set, I knew it was the one. I would have never thought of using these colors together, but they really are great together. The sketch comes from Inspirational Card Sketches and it was also great with this stamp set. I am now finally getting my card stash back up to par, except my daughter came in this morning and took two birthday cards. Now I have to do some more birthday cards. I think I need to start charging her. lol

Ingredients:

Stampin' Up! Products: Stamp Set - Flight of the Butterfly. Card Stock - Lavender Lace, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant & Whisper White. Ink - Lavender Lace, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant. Punch - 3 flower punch (retired). Half Back Pearls from Prettiest Kit.

Non Stampin' Up! - Cuddlebug for background.

Such a pretty card! I love the background and who doesn't love butterflies! Thanks for your sweet comments on our blog and we hope blogging is as fun for you as it is for us!
On a side note we live in Florida but NC is a home away from home for me since I was born there and still have ALOT of family there.
