Time for another fabulous Pink Saturday.

 Beverly is hosting her wonderful Pink Saturday again!  Thank you Beverly, this is so much fun, I have found so many wonderful blogs and met so many wonderful bloggers through your Pink Saturdays.  Please do pop by and say hi to Beverly, you will love her blog How Sweet the Sound.  Today's card is simple, the butterfly die cuts are from My Graphico SVG Shop called Botanical Butterflies.  I cut the butterflies on white cardstock, used a punch on the edge,  placed a piece of pink card stock behind it and embossed it with a Stampin Up embossing plate.  Then I colored the butterflies with pink chalks and mounted them back into their spaces with some dimensionals to give them some pop.  
 I have had my Sure Cuts A Lot software for over 2 years now but I am still finding new ways to use it.  I just recently figured out that I could aim my die cuts on a page by selecting the paper size.  I was using it for 12x12 or 8.5x11 and cut a ton of whatevers.  Now I found out I can place the butterflies on the page and cut them where I want them.  Pretty cool I think, it is a bit to get the hang of, the items are a bit dyslexic, and that's bad because I am too.  It takes me a few tries to figure out which way, what I have on the screen will cut and which way to load the paper.  But I am definitely happy I am learning this, it is well worth the effort.  Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
