I took the sketch literally and used butterfly stamps. I started out with Hero Arts designer butterflies. I was trying out different color combinations when my favorite butterfly broke while cleaning it! Has this ever happened to anyone before? It was so sad. I love that butterfly and I wasn't cleaning it that vigorously, merely wiping some ink off!
At any rate, I switched over to Martha Stewart doily lacy butterflies and used just one color, Brilliance Mediterranean blue, for a classic blue and white card. I cut my card narrower than usual and combined one larger butterfly with two smaller. I added a PTI sentiment from damask designs and some bling to each butterfly, making this card also fit the One-Layer Wednesday challenge to create a one-layer birthday card with bling.
I've just returned home again from another short trip, this time to the beautiful Oregon Coast with my two daughters, my mom, and my mother-in-law. It's a lovely tradition for my girls to have these memories with their grandmas. And so lovely for me to come home to such friendly comments on my blog. Thank you for your visits and your kind words.
