Butterfly Dream

Good morning, friends!  It is Shirley posting today.

I have a butterfly card to show you. I knew the minute I noticed the stamp in the Classy Cards 'n Such online store, that I was going to love this stamp. I have no idea why I did not notice this beautiful stamp in the store sooner, but I think you will see me use it a lot now that I have it in my collection.

I started my card with a turquoise card base, and added a layer of purple and gold card stock over it.

I prepared my white card stock for embossing by using the Anti-static Bag, to avoid stray specks of embossing powder on my card. I stamped the Heartfelt Creations Dream in Beauty stamp, on white card stock using Versamark and used Gold Detail embossing powder. I colored the butterflies with markers. I used Distress Inks to sponge around the image. 

I chose to use the Impression Obsession 6 in 1 Frame die to cut the purple and blue frame.

For my finishing touch, I used the Memory Box Scalloped Posie die, to cut the purple flower. I used a leaf punch, to punch the turquoise and gold leaves. I scrunched the leaves to give them a more realistic look. I added a Silver Rhinestone to the center of the Scalloped Posie. 

I hope you liked the card and please come back this afternoon to see another one.

Stunning card, Shirley!! The hues of blue, purple and gold embossing make beautiful music together - I fell for this card as soon as I saw it. Love that little purple flower to finish it off! HUGS!
