Butterfly Love

Since I had this pretty paper out already, I made another card using the leftover pieces.   I used Freshly Made Sketch #118 for the layout.  This time I used more of the flower print on a Baja Breeze card base.

I embossed a smaller piece of the Baja Breeze with the Elegant Lines embossing folder.  I stamped my sentiment and the butterfly body using Dark Chocolate ink on a Crumb Cake cardstock square.  I stamped two sets of butterfly wings on Baja Breeze cardstock with the matching ink and then punched them out.  After I stamped the butterfly body on the top layer, I put them together, bending the wings for dimension, and then glued it in place.  I distressed the Crumb Cake edges to add more texture.

Inside the card, I added one more strip of the flower print to dress it up a little bit.  Voila!  A pretty spring-y card to brighten up this cold January.  You can see other cards using the sketch here
