Butterfly Note

Love the colors in this card. The paper actually came from a set that someone gave me for something not too long ago. I stamped the butterflies on the striped paper and then used the circles for the background. I cased this from the Featured Stamper from last week. You take a card from her gallery and then case it putting your own twist on it because you know you can't copy it exactly. That's like Stamper's Faux Paus or something. Anyway the card that I cased from her is here. This is one that I started late and of course couldn't go to bed until I finished it. Yawn! I put Dew Drops in the center of the butterflies which you can't see very well. Then also added them out beside the sentiment. I added Cotton Candy Stickles to the butterflies as well to give them some sparkle. Maybe one day I'll become a better photographer and be able to capture that sparkle a little better. The card size is actually 3 1/2 x 7 1/2. It started out as 4 x 8 but I took the matte off and just used the circle paper and so I wasn't going to waste the piece I had already cut. Anyway I am pleased how this turned out and have been wanting to do a butterfly card for a while. Hope you like it too.
