My Little Butterfly

Yesterday's colour challenge on Splitcoaststampers was a stumper for sure - how do you incorporate Pretty in Pink, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay together?!

I had always loved all of Dawn McVey's butterfly cards BUT when I saw that my cyberfriend Julie Lacey, from Stamps and Taxes had used the die on her beautiful butterfly cards - that pushed me over the edge and I broke down and bought the BIGZ butterfly die and I LOVE it!

I also had seen Dawn use the Amy Butler butterflies on one of her cards so I got mine out, which I have had forever - yep, I belong to Hoarders Anonymous 1-800-GIVEMESTUFF- and whipped up a card for the colour challenge using both butterflies.

I used the perfect sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps Earth Angel stamp set - you will see more of this set - hopefully tomorrow - it has so many sentiments and a cute little angel with a variety of wings that you can mix and match - fascinating set!!

I used the corresponding paper K & Company paper that matched the Amy Butler butterfly, Ripe Avocado and Sweet Blush from Papertrey Ink and also Baja Breeze - yep bought a pack awhile ago - from Stamping UP when they still offered it......again hoarding.

I pretty much cased Julie's card with a few changes, but it is so beautiful, why not? Thanks Julie (don't hit me).

I also got a chance to use my EK Success embossed curve punch which I love!

Hope you like it and see you later with my Papertrey Ink blog hop creation!


  1. I just love the beautiful papers you used on this lovely card Bonnie! AND all the scrolly bling!
