Butterfly Dreams

Well, I finally did it Jen!  I used some of your butterflies you sent me!!  Now, I can't wait to get my hands on my OWN butterfly die!!  LOL.........Anyway, this card uses Butterfly Dreams and boy will I see this set inked up more often!!  Very fun set!!


I also used Background Basics: Botanicals.  Can you say EASY??  This particular background stamp was super easy to get lined up.  I thought the dots between the flowers tied in so well with the dots on the butterflies!!  I used some tiny pearls for the butterfly bodies and did you see that ivory trim?  I found that at a store called Tuesday Morning (like 3 spools for $1.29 and had to buy other colors too).  Just add a little line of Scor-tape and whallaa....instant border!  The trim ends wanted to unravel just a bit so I just tacked them down with a drop of Fabri-Tac.



Have a beautiful day!  Thanks for coming by!
