thank you butterflies...

Hey... happy weekend!!  Yesterday was a gorgeous day here and in the evening my neighbors got their fire pit going.   Once there were some nice coals we made our first s'mores of the year!!  Unfortunately as this is the Pacific Northwest our nice weather has sort of evaporated...it is supposed to rain!  Oh well!! After all that fun I finally got the photos I had take of a couple of cards edited and I'm sharing one today.  This one uses the current Freshly Made Sketches layout and since I used butterflies I will be adding it to the current Time Out challenge... don't you just love that inspiration photo???  I pulled out some older My Mind's Eye papers, found a couple I liked and got to work.  The butterflies are from the MFT Beautiful Butterflies stamp set.  I stamped the butterfly using MFT's Ripe Raspberry ink and then die cut with the matching dies.  I modified the sketch a bit by shrinking it down so that the MFT label die that I used wouldn't look so out of proportion!  That was die cut from the light pink woodgrain paper.  The background paper was die cut as well.  Layered everything up and then finished with the sentiment (from the Beautiful Butterflies companion sentiment set) embossed on vellum with white embossing powder.  Drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew were added to the butterflies wings.  A nice simple little card. 

Wishing you a wonderful day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI rustic white, PTI vellum; Patterned paper:  My Mind's Eye; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Dies:  My Favorite Things and AJVD; Inks:  My Favorite Things, VersaMark; Nuvo Crystal Drops

If the rain is coming from the south it's on the way--haha! Gotta make use of the nice weather when we have it--even for just a few hours! Love your printed paper butterflies & the pink woodgrain paper is a wow! Lovely use of both the sketch & the photo, Rosemary--beautiful card! I've been thinking about a card with printed paper & maybe I'll finally do it today!

What pretty little patterned butterflies!! This is a lovely card Rosemary. I like the sentiment on vellum letting the woodgrain show through. Sounds like fun times with the neighbors and s'mores!
