This card was made for the StampinB's #43 challenge to use a flower, a die cut and a butterfly. I've resolved to use my old stamps and supplies more often, so I dug out these Quickutz flower dies to create the flower. I used a top note die cut negative to create the frame around the main image. If you click on the photo, you'll see that I stamped the linen background with sherbet ice ink to give a softer look. Then I went around the top note mask with a tombow to create faux stitching. I used some glaze pens on the butterfly just for the fun of it and then added 3 black kaiser pearls to the body. I used a tiny drop of liquid pearls in the flower center to finish it off. I used scraps from my stash for this card, and I decided to leave the sentiment off until I'm ready to use it.
We woke up to some white stuff on the ground this morning here in PA, and I'll keep looking at this card to remind me that warmer weather is right around the corner........well......almost :)
Have a wonderful Thursday!
