Butterflies and Newsprint

The Card Concept has a fun butterfly theme challenge this go-around, and since I love butterflies, I had to play along.  I went with a Clean and Layering style this time.

I love the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die, so I pulled it out and paired it with some pretty Spring-like dsp, Afternoon Picnic.  I love the colors in this dsp.

Hardwood ButterflyI started by using clear embossing powder with the Hardwood background stamp on Very Vanilla card stock.  I then cut two banners using the Banners Framelits dies — one with the dsp and the other with vellum card stock.  Using Pewter embossing powder, I embossed the sentiment from Express Yourself.

I die cut two of the butterflies and added some little flowers for the center using the Boho Blossoms punch and the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.

Enjoy your Saturday!  We’re taking the kids to the movies today and I’ve been sewing some draperies for our master bedroom and our newly remodeled bathroom.  I’m not much of a seamstress, so it takes me a while to make simple ones.  I haven’t had to rip out any mistakes yet, so I’m hoping I can finish them up today.  Thanks for stopping by!
