Whenever I have tiny bits of dsp left over, I punch them into 1" squares and keep them in a little box. Yesterday I pulled out that box and sorted through them to find some assorted polka dot bits, then glued them all on a piece of card, cutting it with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle die. I decided to pull out my retired SU!/Sizzix butterfly die and cut the 3 butterflies from snippets of brightly colored card stock. I embossed each one with a different dotted embossing folder to coordinate with the polka dot patchwork background. I shredded 2 pieces of black with my paper cutter for the antennae, adhering with glossy accents. The butterflies are popped up with foam tape and I added a big honkin' gemstone from Pizzazz Aplenty for the butterfly body. The sentiment is from MFP, and the card base is Melon Mambo from SU!
I'm sharing this insanely bright, colorful card over at the Snippets Playground #239 as well as Mrs. A's Butterfly challenge #58 - D is for Dimension and/or Denim.
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a fabulous day!
