A Row of Butterflies — FabFri09

It’s time for another Fab Friday challenge after having been on a short break for the Christmas holiday.  Mindy has a great sketch challenge for this week.

I immediately thought of snowflakes when I saw this sketch, but my heart wanted to do something more Spring-y.  Maybe it’s because of all of the cold and gray weather we’ve been having lately, and I’m looking forward to Spring already.

A Row of Butterflies

Here’s another card with some fun new products from the Sping catalog.  I used the new Bitty Butterfly punch, which layers perfectly with the Elegant Butterfly punch in the annual catalog.  And I also used some of the new Delicate Details Lace Tape, which comes in two designs and has a self-adhesive backing, so it’s easy to attach to your projects.

Here’s a closer look at the tape and butterflies:

  1. I just noticed that the Artisan Awards application time has already begun. PLEASE try again!! I think that your designs are awesome and make sure I check out your blog every day. Some of the projects you made last year were SO much better than some of the ones chosen. I am only one person and you’ll have to decide for yourself, but I LOVE to see what new ideas you have. Thanks for sharing!! Pam Franklin, Stampin’ Up! demonstrator

    • Oh, Pam! You made me smile. Thanks for your kind words. I haven’t really thought about whether to enter or not again this year yet. But if I do, I sure wish you were on the judging panel! Have a great weekend!

  2. Such a pretty card!! Love all the colors!! The butterflies are so “springy”!!!! I may have to CASE this one!! (Hope that’s ok, and that’s a big compliment!!!)
