I finally used up the last of this pretty lavender dsp I broke out for Easter cards and projects. I just couldn't seem to leave it alone until every precious scrap was put to some use. I bought it a long time ago and don't even know who makes it, but I stopped hoarding it and finally used it. I promised myself I'd start using my stash this year instead of buying more! LOL
I used the SU! sizzix butterfly die for the medium and larger butterfly images, and used a MS punch for the smallest one. The larger butterfly was embossed with a cuttlebug ef for a little texture. I used a MS doily punch for the horizontal border, some ric-rac from my stash, and a Kaiser gemstone for the center of the smallest butterfly. The sentiment is from SU! done in Lavender Lace.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope your Friday is a fabulous one!
