It was another dreary day here on Long Island yesterday and it finally poured for about 15 minutes around 5:15 yesterday and then it was done. Michael met me at my house at 3:45 and we headed over to Scrap-A-Latte. I had to cut for class and he wanted to finish working on his baby book. We also got to see Renee’s kids Nicholas and Krista. They left a little early to go to dinner so we locked up. On the way home we stopped and got Hurricane’s Wings for dinner and came back to my house and watched some YouTube videos. Another nice day! So far it’s been a pretty good week and It’s almost Friday! Woo hoo!
My card that I have for you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…
I have been wanting to use a new butterfly die that I acquired and this seemed like a good place for it! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Simon Says Stamp Clustered Leaves Die to cut out some Vellum and adhered it to the card with 2-Way Glue. The Simon Says Stamp Leanna Butterfly is cut from Blushing Bride and Mint Macaroon, the two pink ones are adhered with Multi-Purpose Glue and the mint one with a tiny piece of Foam Tape. I put a Basic Jewel Pearl in the middle of each one. The greeting is cut from Basic Black with the Simon Says Stamp You’re Amazing Die and adhered to the card with some more 2-Way Glue. A few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins are scattered around and complete the card and give it a little sparkle. I love the delicate look of the butterflies against the soft vellum leaves! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for taking a little time from your day to stop by and see me! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂
