Beautiful Butterflies Cottage Wall


The beautiful butterflies Bigz die is just that, BEAUTIFUL! I just can't get enough of it. I would probably start out by going on and on about all the cute In Color Polka Dot ribbon, but I am in love with the butterfly dies, too! Oh, and then next we'd have to chat about the NEW finial press embossing folder, because at just $7.95 (really!!!), you simply cannot afford to be WITHOUT it! I used it to add the subtle floral texture on the pale plum background. The designer paper I used on this card is also NEW: Cottage Wall. It is feminine and fantastic!

The inspiration for today's card came from the Clean and Simple Challenge #25, to case this card by Krystie Lee:

I kept the same basic layout, but changed the dimensions, colors, DSP, and embellishments. I love to play along with various weekly challenges, it keeps inspiration coming!

I can't believe how the new Idea Book & Catalog is just packed from front to back with so many affordable, ADORABLE new products. If you haven't gotten your copy, yet, this is the last week I am offering it for just $5 (regular price $9.95). Email me to get your copy today!

The half-back pearls are another fave of mine, an oldie, but goodie! I used them to create the body of the butterfly. I adhered them using a mini-glue dot on each. It turns out mini-glue dots are just the right size for the half-backed pearl.

As I mentioned, the new In Color polka dot grosgrain ribbon is pretty high up there on my faves list in the new catalog, I love that it is two-sided: use the polka dots or not, it's up to you!
