For the past week or two, a couple white butterflies have been fluttering past the window in my craft room. I stopped several times to watch them as they seemed to circle around my window for some reason. This prompted me to make a white butterfly card, so I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch #364 and here's what I came up with. The embossed panel was done with a Darice butterfly ef, and I added a snippet of embossed silver dsp for the center strip. The circles were die cut with Gina Marie stitched circles and I used one layer in PTI white, and the smaller one in a pearlized cardstock. I'm sorry the camera didn't pick up the details on that, because the subtle shimmer looks so pretty! The butterfly was done with a pair of MB Vivienne and Darla butterfly dies, and the 3 random butterflies were done with a Punch-Bunch in 2 different sizes. The final touch was to add some white pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty. The butterfly body is made of 2 teardrop white pearls.
I can use this card for a sympathy, encouragement, or thinking of you card, so I'll add a sentiment when I actually use the card.
Have you ever been inspired to make a card by something you've seen from your window? It's funny - I never noticed any white butterflies until the past 2 weeks but they sure made their presence known!
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great Friday! Stay cool! It's a sizzler outside today!
