Contemporary Butterfly


I made this card for 2 challenges.  The challenge at Tellens Place is to use more than 1butterfly or a dragonfly in your project.  I also used the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesdays for the lay out.  Actually I goofed and had only 1 butterfly, as I was writing this post I noticed the word MORE than one, in bold no less.  Off I dashed to add more butterflies, ha ha.  Card Stock is DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies,  I used Spellbinders Lotus Pendant and Shapeabilities, Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio Shapeabilities.  The butterflies are  Stampin up Wonderful Wings and Martha Stewart medium punch.  I finally tried out the Imaginisce i*top Brad Maker, Small Topper Punch,  Small Brad Daddies that I won.  These were so easy to make, and I like the contemporary look they gave to this card.  I can see where making these can be addictive!  The ribbon I had was a bright white, so I used Ranger's Tim Holtz Distress Ink Scattered Straw to give it the same yellow tinge that the dp had.  I really like the Ranger distressing inks!  The stamped sentiment is a Just Rite stamp.  Thanks for looking, ~Diane
