Elegant Butterfly Punch

 
Wow, can you believe I made a card tonight.  Well my husband is back into the football mode with high school, so I am the Friday night widow for the next 3 months.  I am excited when it starts but love to see it end also.  This card was inspired by the sketch frenzy Friday sketch this week.  This is another item I have been wanting to use and just got around to it.  I am loving the new butterfly punch and the stamp set that goes along with it.  Now this embossing folder is one I found at AC Moore by Darice and it was on sale for under $3, so I could not resist.  And after making this card I now know why.
 
Here is a side view of the card.
 
 
I also spritzed it with Gold Glow Smooch Spritz.  Here is a close up which gives you a little idea of what it looks like.  Click on the photo and you will see a bigger image.
 
 
And yes, I did do the inside.  It has just become a habit now.

Oh, so PRETTY!! That embossing folder is really lovely! I'm going to have to try to track that one down, although we don't have an AC Moore up here! I guess a trip to the States would kind of defeat the bargain price, wouldn't it? lol Beautiful card, Jonia! :o)
