Blue Butterflies


Just  a clean and simple "butterfly" card for you today!  Now I've never actually seen a blue butterfly with pearls on his body...but I bet he'd be pretty!  I like the card - but then I like almost any card with blue on it.  The only thing stamped on here was the sentiment (from SU's Three Little Words set).  The butterflies are just punched out with a SU punch, attached, and the wings "fluffed out" - I used some CTMH paper for them.  The white panel behind the butterflies was embossed using the Birds and Swirls from Provo Craft.  The lace was a "find" from the Thrift store.   And you don't even have to tell me this....that's one ratty looking knot tied in the lace but after the fourth of fifth attempt to get it to look good, I finally just gave up and decided I wasn't working for Hallmark so it was ok!!!  LOL!

I'll enter this in the challenges at The Paper Shelter (punches and dies) and Stampavie and More (butterflies) and Catch the Bug over at Bugaboo (pearls and lace).

Thanks for stopping by...........and I'll see everyone again on Friday......

Would the butterfly be blue if it landed on a bluebonnet? I think it is beautiful, love the blue against the white and the pearls. (your knot is just fine)

What a stunning card! Very dramatic. I love it. I went to a wedding with this color combo and it was so beautiful. The pearls were the perfect touch for the butterflies!

Joan Ervin said...
