Butterflies!!

Happy Sunday!! Hope you've been having a great weekend!! My neice stopped by on her way from Maine to Florida... we knew she was going to come by, just not when. Always fun to visit with family! While my DH and neice are watching TV {I think napping a bit too!} I thought I would get this card posted that I made the other day.

I used the CR84FN65 color challenge of light pink, tan, and cream and since I was using MFT's Inspired by Butterflies I thought I would use this week's MFT sketch. {Click on the bolded words for a direct link to both challenges.}

The butterfly from MFT's Inspired by Butterflies was stamped with soft suede, colored with copics, and cut with MFT's coordinating die-namic. Added some glitter to the wings for sparkle. Used a MFT doily for the center and topped with a circle nestie which was stamped with a sentiment from Inspired by Butterflies, heat embossed and then dry embossed with a SU Victorian folder. Added the sentiment on a MFT fishtail flag die-namic. A Pink Paislee wooden button with cloth brad on top to finish.

The colors...

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate when you do and love all the kind words!!

i love your take on the sketch. I was looking for an idea for my mom's birthday card. Perfect! I like the details in your card, not too busy, eye appealing.

Beautiful - pink and kraft look so well together and your interpretation of the sketch is lovely. I also like the little touch of blue in the gems. Elizabeth
