Butterfly Beauty

With all the dull winter weather we've been having here in the Michigan area, I needed something a little brighter to lift my spirits. Enter Butterfly Beauty (SD829).  I simply adore this large butterfly. 

The card and sentiment kind of brightened my day, and I hope it will brighten the recipient's as well.

To create the card, I started with an orange A2 card base. On a piece of white CS, using my MISTI, I stamped the butterfly twice so I could get a good, solid impression. I used colored pencils to color in the various areas of the Butterly, then blended using a Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua Pen.

I trimmed down the panel to 5 ¼" by 4". I then stamped the sentiment from the set Simple Sentiments 3A (SS03a) and added a few jewels and some blown marker spray to finish off the design. Then I just popped that whole panel onto my card using foam tape.

I really am loving these Simple Sentiment sets (there are quire a few of them in different fonts, black with white lettering, white with black lettering and vertical). Each set has 13 individual sentiments. One of the best purchases I've made. Great for every event you want to cover, in many styles. I am never at a loss to convey that perfect sentiment on the front (or inside!) of my cards. 

Here is a peak at all of them that are available:

That's a lot! Am I right? And the good news is that you can save 10% on these, or any other product (including the MISTI!) on the Technique Junkies website. Just enter the code below at checkout and your discount will be applied.

Til next time,
