The Cat's Pajamas Tuesday Challenge

Hi there, blog friends! I'm playing along with a 'new to me' challenge at The Cat's Pajamas. My sweet friend Michele gifted me with some of TCP lovely die cuts and I chose to play with the butterflies ~


I ink blended the butterflies with Salty Ocean and Twisted Citron DI's, and in retrospect, I wish I had added wire antennae to each butterfly, but I thought of it after they were glued down. Next, I shaped the embossed sentiment to mimic the stitched scalloped border and added the striped papers for contrast. A few sparkly gems and this card was done and dusted :)


Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies
Stamps: PTI - Keep it Simple: Friendship
