I love butterflies and Stampin’ Up! certainly has some beautiful butterfly stamps. This large stamp came out in a previous mini catalog but I didn’t get it until just recently. I had fun making this card and know you will be seeing much more of it from me in the future. For this card I heat embossed the butterfly and the sentiment with Pool Party embossing powder. The butterfly stamp is actually quite large but I like the look of using just a portion of it and I purposely stamped it a bit off center and tilted. Add a little bling and you have a quick, easy card.

I mentioned I got a bit of a sunburn yesterday …. that is an understatement. I am cooked! Bright lobster red. I look like a tourist ’cause they tend to not realize how easily you can burn at the beach. I’ve lived here over 40 years.  Should have known better. Just saying.


Thanks for stopping by,
