Butterfly Happiness!

Back in June when I created this Butterfly Birthday card for DRS Designs Give Away, I went on a butterfly frenzy and colored up a whole bunch of Butterfly Ribbon Slides (681D).  In the midst of transforming my stamping room to the baby's nursery, I misplaced the envelope with all the butterflies in it and guess what I found just the other day?!?!?  So, needless to say, I've drawn up a bunch of card sketches so that I can use them up.  I hope you like these butterflies as much as I do, cause I'm going to be showing them off a lot in the next few weeks!  I wouldn't want you to get bored seeing them though, so don't worry, they are all different colors! ;-)

I put the yellow one to use using this weeks Splitcoast Sketch challenge #346

I used the Happiness Butterfly Greeting (222G) as my focal point.  I cut it out using a Nestability die and inked the edges yellow before taking it out of the die.  The white panel I used in the background for the card front was stamped using the Silhouette Butterfly Background (536H). I heat embossed it using Diamonds and Pearls Embossing powder.  The Polka Dot panel was also stamped using DRS Designs Polka Dot Background stamp (688P).  Some black grosgrain ribbon added a nice touch to this panel. 

As the final step I cut out 2 of the yellow Butterfly Ribbon Slides and attached them with 3 black brads and then adhered it to the card front as shown.  I love the 3D effect that makes the butterfly look as if it's flying! 

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned to see more butterfly goodness coming soon!
