CASology Challenge - Butterfly


Hi there blog friends! In December, Jen from CASology chose my card as the winner for the cue card 'Gray', and today I am honored to be Guest Designer for the current challenge! The cue card this week is 'Butterfly', and oh, do I love playing with my butterfly stamps and dies :)


Here is my take on 'Butterfly' ~


Beautiful butterflies was one of my first stamp sets from PTI and I don't ink it up often enough. For this card, I decided to add the Fancy Flourishes in pastel pink to highlight the sentiment. I never seem to have a sympathy card on hand when I need it, so I took this opportunity to create this one for future use.

CASology is such a fun challenge...the DT girls are incredibly talented and the cue card is always thought provoking! If you have a chance, stop over there and check it out...I would love to see some of the butterflies you have tucked away in your stash :)

My sincere thanks to Jen for selecting my card and to Melissa for asking me to be the Guest Designer for this week's challenge ~
Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Beautiful Butterflies, Fancy Flourishes
Die: Mama Elephant - All Prettied Up
Ink: MFT - Cotton Candy, Frosty Pink, Versafine Onyx Black

Your butterfly and flourish are so soft and soothing, Barb, and perfect for a sympathy card. It's funny but my PTI Beautiful Butterflies don't have this stamp in it. Maybe there are two with that name.
