Sweet Mini Butterflies Card

This is my 1st card this week as Card Captain of the Michael Strong's Yahoo group.

Every month there's a sketch challenge at the Michael Strong's Yahoo group and this is the sketch for June and July.

I used this sketch once and I loved the Birds Flight Card, so I created a similar card with mini butterflies.

Cream leather textured CS for the card's basis
Recycled CS from a magazine
Basic Grey patterned paper - Pheobe
Michael Strong's Mini Cloisonné Wings stamp set - Butterfly (small)
Dark pink organza ribbon with white dots
Embossing ink
Brown ink
Black EP
Black pen
Dark pink and clear blings
Dark pink artificial flower stamens
Double sided foam tape
EK Success Corner Adorner

I used Michael Strong's Cloisonné Butterfly (small) from the Mini Cloisonné Wings stamp set.
I stamped it on a recycled CS from a magazine and heat embossed it with black EP.
Then I cut the mini Butterflies using TH scissors.
I used dark pink artificial flower stamens for each butterfly's antennas, taped on its back side.
I distressed the patterned paper pieces with brown ink to give it contrasting edges.
I glued the patterned paper and the mini Butterflies 3D, using double sided foam tape, for extra dimension.
The sentiment "Happy Birthday" was written by me on the Basic Grey patterned paper.
I added dark pink and clear blings for extra glam.

  3. What a pretty design, Dorly! ...and what a good idea to use the butterflies on this one! Don't you just love being able to do variations on a card design that you really like! I liked your bird card as well! Also, I like that you used your own handwriting for the "happy birthday". Great reminder that we can always write out our own sentiments!! Regards, Laura
